United target, Oblak seeks fresh challenge from Atletico Madrid


Transfer situations might be working in favour of Man United as they have been boosted in their reported search for a new and quality goalkeeper ahead of the coming season.

The Red Devils seem to have had enough of the blunders committed by Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea and are ready to show him the way out or make him a second choice.

Man United have identified Jan Oblak of Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid as the best fit for the club, owing to his experience and quality. He is rated as one of the best shot-stoppers in the world.

However, things seem to be falling in place as Jan Oblak has reportedly declared his wish to have a fresh challenge and considers a move away from Madrid this summer, The Sun claims.

Jan Oblak has spent six years with Atletico Madrid without a title to boast despite his rating and quality and that is already getting to him.

Meanwhile, Man United will have to battle with West London outfit Chelsea for the signature of Jan Oblak with the Blues also monitoring the situation, having had enough of the woeful performances by Kepa Arrizabalaga since the restart of the season.
