I'm not completely convinced by Pickford, but I wouldn't consider selling him whilst planning on replacing him with someone on the cheap.
Even if it meant a shot at let's say a world class midfielder or striker who would benefit the team more ?

Expect to see about 400 posts about how he pushes shots into danger zones.

it's not about that though is it. Realistically jordan isn't in our top 3 most important players and if someone would pay over to the odds meaning we can invest elsewhere it makes business sense...

We will never agree on this so you may as well save yourself some stress tbh mate.

But I think it would mean we should be looking to replace him with a top class player, who would probably be very expensive.

Overall premise though yes, we should always be assessing player worth (to the team and monetarily) and if we receive an offer in excess of those then we should reinvest that to improve.

Our Number 1 position is solved for the next five seasons, at least - not for sale and £50m is under the odds 

Numbers 2 - 11, work in progress and will consider all bids

Nah get someone in on the cheap....someone like Utds no 2 Romero. We d hardly notice a difference in goalkeeping quality but would with the extra quality in midfield.

So replace a decent, 24 year old keeper with plenty time to improve with 31 year old keeper who's barely played 25 games in three season (12 of those were in United's 16/17 Europa League campaign) on the off chance that we can attract a world class midfielder or striker, we might as well have kept the mediocre Robles if we want to go cheap on a goal keeper. And given that we're probably going to finish between 7th and 10th we're not going to get a world class midfielder or striker in anyway and then people would just moan if we blew the Pickford money on more Sigurdsson type signings.

That doesn't make sense to me and id say that pickford is still a work in progress.  If someone is prepared to pay full up money we should consider it.

I think the telling thing for me is that pretty much everyone whether they like pickford or not has reservations about him which is not how you should feel about a top class goalkeeper.

For me he is not great at anything- he's a decent prem league shot stopper but pushes the ball into the danger area, he doesn't command the box as well as he could, he creates anything but calm, he's erratic and often gets beaten from areas you think he shouldn't.

50m is almost that ndombele money so yeah if that's the sort of player we spent it on ! He for example would a much bigger upgrade than pickford would be a loss imo.
But you would still need a goalie you plant pot.

So basically
We replace Pickford with some bloke from man u, despite everyone moaning about signing man u rejects and then we go out with said money and try to buy someone who is linked with numerous cl clubs an probably wouldn't sign?

It's a no for me
Simply simply lovely

Couldn't have done any worse than the previous decision makers  nod

Swapping a young up and coming keeper for a midfielder and a retiree keeper is a good start to be up there with the Walters and Martinez types,  don't sell yourself short .

Real Madrid after Pickford? That's because he's the real deal

Pickford is still work in progress and that's the point: top class work in progress and worth more than £50m

Not for sale
