The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see David De Gea stay at the club this summer…
The Spaniard has been linked with a big-money switch to Real Madrid in recent weeks, and given that a deal between the two clubs almost came to be a few years ago – it is likely that a transfer is a genuine possibility.
Man Utd would then, of course, need to sign a replacement of a similar quality, and if Manchester Evening News is to be believed – they may well have already found their man.
Whilst they don’t suggest that Man Utd are considering a move, Manchester Evening News are reporting that Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak would be willing to make a move to Old Trafford this summer – on one condition.
Indeed, the publication are reporting – as per a source close to Oblak – that as long as David De Gea moves away from Man Utd this summer, the goalkeeper would be willing to make a switch. It is said that the prospect of playing for a top club alongside increased wages is of particular interest to Oblak.
This has delighted the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern, with the Atletico Madrid shot-stopper arguably one of the best in La Liga. Indeed, he won the award for best La Liga goalkeeper in the 2015/16 season, which serves as evidence for this.
See what he can do below…
Oblak’s rise has been pretty remarkable. Since joining the club, he has quickly established himself as one of Europe’s finest goalkeepers – in many ways following in the footsteps of David De Gea at Atletico Madrid. An excellent shot stopper, decent in the air and very mobile – Oblak is arguably the perfect goalkeeper.
