Jan Oblak

Premier League giants Manchester United are planning a summer transfer for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak as a possible replacement for David De Gea if the Spaniard decides to leave the Red Devils this summer.

This is according to report from popular media channel ESPN.

Spanish international shot-stopper David De Gea is the first choice goalkeeper at Manchester United but his future at the club is in doubt with his contract running out.

David De Gea has a year left on his current deal at Manchester United and both parties are no closer to a resolution.

His contractual situation seems to have affected his performances on the pitch with recent mistakes in goal for Manchester United.

De Gea has committed high-profile errors in recent games against Arsenal, Barcelona, Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea.

Manchester United have to make a decision over his future with just 12 months remaining on his present contract at the club.

The Red Devils might need to sell him this summer or risk losing him for nothing in the summer of 2020.

According to the aforementioned publication from ESPN, Manchester United have made Oblak their top transfer target to replace De Gea but they might have to pay his £105m release clause to sign him.
