Erik ten Hag’s transfer strategy for Manchester United ripped into pieces by Roy Keane

With Manchester United, Erik ten Hag is preparing for a big summer transfer window. However, his plans have already been derailed by Roy Keane’s harsh assessment of one of his targets.

Keane’s Criticism of Pickford Disrupts ten Hag’s Man United Transfer Plans

Erik ten Hag’s summer transfer ambitions are in ruins thanks to Roy Keane, who attacked possible Manchester United target Jordan Pickford from all sides.

If David de Gea does not agree to a new contract at Old Trafford, Pickford has been mentioned as a possible alternative. There is no indication that negotiations to extend Ten Hag’s No. 1’s contract, which expires at the end of the current campaign, are moving forward.

The United manager will need to find a new first-choice keeper if he leaves, and Pickford is one of the names rumoured to be on his short list. The interim captain of Everton has played admirably for England under Gareth Southgate, but has only recorded seven shutouts for the Toffees.

Roy Keane Criticizes Pickford’s Performance Against Man City

Jordan Pickford has allowed 56 goals in all competitions, putting Everton in serious danger of being demoted from the Premier League. Ilkay Gundogan scored twice in the loss against Manchester City on Sunday, accounting for three of those goals.

His second effort was a free-kick that he took from the edge of the area, with Pickford positioning himself on the other side. As a result, Gundogan had plenty of room to lift the ball into the top corner, and Keane criticized Pickford’s goalkeeping performance.

Pickford may have been in violation of the law when he seemed to punch ErlingHaaland in the face while vying for a high ball, but referee Anthony Taylor decided not to call a foul.

The Englishman had a terrible day, which coincided with reports that he would go to Old Trafford for the summer. On Thursday, Mirror Football reported that United had been preparing a bid for Pickford.

Keane’s Criticism Raises Doubts on ten Hag’s Pickford Plan for Man United

Ten Hag is willing to provide the England star a big pay raise in order to land him as opposed to one of his other targets. The Red Devils will also be able to give him the chance to compete for trophies after an outstanding debut season under their new manager.

But Keane seems to have destroyed Ten Hag’s ambitions to relocate for Pickford. It’s likely that his harsh assessment of Pickford’s performance versus City will do considerable damage to his chances of joining the Red Devils.
