Manchester United have begun plans to replace David De Gea when the Spaniard finally joins Real Madrid this summer.
De Gea is keen on playing for Real Madrid at some point in his career, and at the age of 26 would feel now is the best time for him to move.
Real Madrid came close to landing him in the summer of 2015, but a late signing of some paper works scuppered the deal. Now, the Los Merengues believe they can finally land their man.
United have identified Atletico Madrid keeper Jan Oblak as the perfect replacement for de Gea, Oblak is one of the most outstanding goalkeepers in Europe. He conceded just 18 goals throughout last season to break a long-standing record in Spain.
The Slovenian has been scouted heavily by Manchester United this season, and it is believed there has been a positive secret meeting between the player and Manchester United representatives.
Jose Mourinho does not trust the second choice, Sergio Romero, enough to make him his first choice next season. The Argentinian saved a penalty against Southampton in midweek to help save United from going down the table.
The Red Devils are also interested in Oblak’s teammate, Antoine Griezmann. The Frenchman is regarded as the best player to replace the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
