There are fears De Gea will refuse to sign a new deal with the Red Devils, while the Spaniard has been linked with Juventus of late.

The United shot-stopper's current contract only expires in 2020, but negotiations over a new deal have reportedly not proved fruitful.

According to The Sun, should De Gea leave, United have identified Everton and England international Jordan Pickford as his potential replacement.

If the Old Trafford club does go for the English shot-stopper, it has been claimed the Manchester outfit would need to splash £60 million (R1.07 billion) to secure his signature.

Pickford has enjoyed an impressive 2018, having starred for England at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with the Three Lions finishing fourth in the tournament.
