In order to replace David de Gea, it is said that Manchester United is considering a transfer for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.
David de Gea’s contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign, according to a report from Fichajes, and he may be leaving the team. There is a replacement in mind: Jan Oblak. It will be interesting to see whether Atletico Madrid is willing to part with the player.
In particular, if Atletico Madrid fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, the 30-year-old Slovenian goalkeeper is said to be eager to leave the La Liga team. For the keeper, moving to Manchester United will be an appealing option.
One of the top clubs in the world, the Red Devils, have made significant strides forward since Erik ten Hag’s hiring. Manchester United, who have secured the League Cup trophy this year, will aim to contend for both the league crown and the Champions League in the upcoming year.
Oblak has over the years demonstrated his ability to perform at a high level, and he also have the potential to succeed in the Premier League. The 30-year-old will believe that now is the ideal time for him to take on an exhilarating new project because he is at the pinnacle of his career. If the deal goes through, he’ll be eager to show off his skills in the Premier League the following year.
The Spanish club could try to charge more for the goalkeeper’s services because he has a long-term deal there. Without a doubt, Manchester United has the means to purchase Jan Oblak for a significant sum of money. And how things turn out is still up in the air.
David de Gea and Manchester United have not been able to reach an agreement on a new contract. It will also be interesting to see how things play out. With his winning mindset, winning experience, and leadership abilities, the Spaniard has been a key player for Manchester United ever since transferring from Atletico Madrid in 2011. He may still be a key member of the dressing room.
According to the source, Manchester United is reportedly considering other goalkeepers in addition to Jan Oblak. At the end of the season, they might try to sign FC Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa or Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.
