11-time Premier League winners Manchester United have identified a potential replacement for David De Gea according to widespread publications from the media in the United Kingdom.

Manchester United shot stopper De Gea has been at the club since the summer of 2011 but he could end his eight-year stay in Manchester this summer.

The Spaniard has one year left on his current deal with Manchester United and both parties are struggling to reach an agreement over a new contract.

David De Gea initially had few months left on his Manchester United contract until the club activated the extra year clause earlier this season to take the length of his current deal to the summer of 2020.

If he fails to sign a new contract, Manchester United will have to decide whether to sell him this summer or risk losing him for free next summer.

According to the report from Metro, Manchester United have already started to draw up a replacement for him in the event that he leaves the club at the end of the season.

It was revealed that Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak is the first choice on the list of goalkeepers that could replace David De Gea at the club.

Jan Oblak recently signed a new contract at Spanish club Atletico Madrid.
