Pickford has made some mistakes in the past year, the most recent of which was a 5-2 victory over Fleetwood in the League Cup. In the current Everton formation, Pickford lacks real competition in the goalkeeper position.

Manchester United's asking price for Romero is 10 million pounds, which may be too high for Everton. On the other hand, Romero does not want a salary cut, his current weekly salary is 100,000 pounds.
The Times stated that if Henderson cannot replace De Gea and leaves the team on loan in January next year, Manchester United may also retain Romero as De Gea's substitute.
