An irregular betting pattern has seen Pickford’s odds to join United slashed.
Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has attracted an unusual amount of betting attention, regarding a shock move to Manchester United.
He’s been cut from 8/1 into 4/5 odds-on favourite to join Jose Mourinho’s side, following an irregular betting pattern on what would be a surprise switch.
In total, 96% of all bets over the weekend on the England number one’s next club have been placed on United being the destination for the Washington-born keeper.
That’s on the eve of the World Cup, in which Pickford will head to as the primary goalkeeper in the Three Lions squad.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Could Manchester United be preparing for life after De Gea?
“Whilst the Spanish 'keeper is still heavily odds-on to stay at Old Trafford this season, the market movement surrounding a surprise move for Pickford suggests that something is going on behind the scenes.
“Given England's shocking record with goalkeepers in major tournaments, Gareth Southgate will be hoping any talk will be put on hold until after the World Cup.”
