Oblak 'wants' Manchester United move

David de Gea Manchester United ready to hand David de Gea staggering sum- to make him leave
Shannon Reynolds | 12 June, 2019, 18:25

A pair of highly-regarded goalkeepers have today been touted as potential replacements for David de Gea at Manchester United.

"The 6'2" keeper signed a new contract earlier this year which will expire in 2023 and he is rumoured to have a release clause of €120 million.

Oblak's annual wage is said to be £1.3m so United could double that and still save on what they would have to offer De Gea (contracted up to June 2020) in a new deal.

And - as we revealed last week - the Old Trafford club will have to give De Gea, 28, a whopping golden handshake to make him go now rather than wait until his United contract runs out next summer.

He now favours a move to United due to "broken promises", according to reports.

Oblak has the most clean sheets (57) of any La Liga goalkeeper since 2016/17.

Reliable Spanish football expert Dermot Corrigan adds that Paris Saint-Germain are also interested, but the boyhood United fan wants to play in the Premier League.

However, United could still press ahead in their attempt to sign Oblak, with uncertainty remaining over De Gea's future.

Oblak has made 204 appearances since joining Atletico Madrid from Benfica in 2014.

PSG are also reportedly in the running for Oblak's signature, as the Slovenia worldwide weighs up his options.

The Slovenian stopper is rated as one of the best in the world following his performances under Diego Simeone in recent years.

The Slovenia worldwide kept 27 clean sheets in 50 matches in 2018 - more than any other goalkeeper in Europe's top five leagues including Liverpool's Alisson and United's De Gea - and conceded just 36 goals. The Spanish global, who endured a hard 2018-19 campaign, will be entering the final year of his contract with the club next month.
