England international Pope is valued by the Clarets at around the £45million mark

The Sun report that Ramsdale, 22, would be available for around half the Pope valuation. The Blades bought him from Bournemouth last year for £18.5m following the Cherries’ relegation into the Championship.

Pope is set to be in the England squad for this summer’s European Championship and will provide back-up to Gareth Southgate’s favoured No 1 Jordan Pickford.

He has impressed for Burnley this season and isn’t short of admirers at the big clubs in the Premier League.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has also considered a return for Tom Heaton, now at Aston Villa, but he has been linked with Manchester United.

Heaton, 35, came through the youth ranks at Old Trafford though never made a first-team appearance for United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for experienced cover for David de Gea and Dean Henderson.
