According to the press, Athletico Madrid shot stopper Jan Oblak is interested in moving to Manchester United.
Oblak, who is one of the most outstanding goalies in Europe, is said to be interested in the Man Utd’s number one spot, which may be vacated by David De Gea if he join Real Madrid this summer.
Manchester United believe that only Jan Oblak is capable of replacing the outstanding De Gea, and if his transfer to Madrid does materialize, they would sign the Slovenian as his replacement. A source close to Oblak has claimed that the keeper considers it a privilege to play for United, who he thinks are still one of the biggest teams in Europe.
Man Utd have been linked with a few goalies after Real Madrid reportedly resurrected their plans to take De Gea back to Spain. They were close to signing him in 2015 but the deal collapsed after some papers were not signed before transfer deadline. They believe de Gea wants to play in the Champions league and that desire would help them persuade him to join them.
