Roy Keane has left Erik ten Hag ‘s summer transfer plans in tatters after launching a full frontal blast of potential Manchester United target Jordan Pickford.

Pickford has been touted as a potential replacement for David de Gea if the Spaniard does not sign a new contract at Old Trafford. His current deal expires at the end of the season, with no sign of progress in talks over an extension for Ten Hag’s No 1.

If he does depart, the United boss will need to find a new first-choice keeper, with Pickford one of the names thought to be on his shopping list. Everton ‘s stand-in captain has performed well for England under Gareth Southgate, but has kept just seven clean sheets for the Toffees this term.

He has also conceded 56 goals in all competitions, with Everton at real risk of relegation from the Premier League. Three of those goals came in Sunday’s defeat to Manchester Citywith Ilkay Gundogan scoring twice.

His second strike came from a free-kick on the edge of the box, with Pickford setting himself up on the opposite side. That left ample space for Gundogan to lift the ball into the top corner, with Keane blasting Pickford for the standard of his goalkeeping.

“Pickford for the goal, my goodness, looks so small in there. There’s no spring, he’s not anticipating. Micah (Richards) said before the game he’s a top goalkeeper – he’s not,” Keane told Sky Sports.

HAVE YOUR SAY! Would Joran Pickford be a good signing for Manchester United? Comment below.

“It’s been tough going. In the last couple of games it’s been easier for Everton away from home – Brighton and at Leicesterplaying on the counter attack, but at home there’s obviously more emotions involved.
