The crisis of Manchester United's goalkeeper after David de Gea's contract causes problems.
Although we are not yet clear about Gea's fate, it is certain that both sides – Manchester United and De Gea, want him to leave the club.
Now it has emerged that Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak, who has been involved in a transfer to Old Trafford for some time, is eager to make the move after "broken promises" about his future with Atlético, according to ESPN.
Oblak was reportedly a child fan of Manchester United. The departures of Diego Godin, Lucas Hernandez, Juanfran and Filipe Luis and the supposed exit of Antoine Griezmann left him unsatisfied with the way the Spanish club can compete with its rivals.
While Paris Saint-Germain is also interested in hiring a Slovenian keeper, he seems to prefer to move to the Red Devils.
Jan Oblak's Profile
Oblak played 37 of 38 games in La Liga in the 2018-19 season and was the best goalkeeper in the league, ending the season with 20 clean games – 4 more than the second on the list, Marc-André having Stegen from Barcelona.
Atletico signed Oblak with Benfica for 16 million euros in 2014 and became one of their most important players.
The 6 & # 39; 2 "keeper signed a new contract earlier this year which expires in 2023 and it is rumored to have a € 120 million release clause.
Should Manchester United go to Oblak?
Manchester United need to make several changes to their squad before the start of the 2019-20 season, and an area that should certainly strengthen if David de Gea comes out is the goalkeeper position.
Oblak is often spoken of in the same phrase as some of the best goalkeepers in the world today, and would be a fantastic signature.
At € 120 million, however, it seems to be well above the market price and the Red Devils must think twice before making such a gigantic offer by the keeper.
Manchester United have to buy first-class first-class players in other areas of the field, especially at the right, center and center midfield, and a large bid for Oblak would substantially include the transfer kit.
The Solskjaer should seek a cheaper goalkeeper option and spend money wisely to strengthen other areas of the field as well.
