Man Utd identify a top replacement for David de Gea

Manchester United want a transfer for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak as they eye a replacement for David de Gea.

De Gea has not really convinced Erik ten Hag since the Red Devils manager took charge in the summer. The 31-year-old Spaniard’s contract runs until the end of the season. United can trigger a clause to extend the deal by another 12 months, but it appears they are thinking a little further ahead.

The Premier League club would offer Oblak a salary of €18 million per year to swap Madrid for Manchester. Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the Slovenian. [Jeunes Footuex – in French]
