If reports coming out of Spain are to be believed, Jan Oblak is considering a switch to Manchester United and even the Red Devils are considering the possibility of triggering Oblak’s €120 million buyout clause in the event De Gea leaves.
The Atletico Madrid shot-stopper is considering his future in the Spanish capital as he is concerned about Rojiblanco’s competitiveness, with star forward Antoine Griezmann set to leave and Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin, Filipe Luis and Juanfran also departing.
The Slovenian international wants the Spanish giants to match his ambitions and prefers the English league, where he can maximize his potential despite the fact that United would be in the Europa League next season.
Paris Saint-Germain are in the market for a world-class keeper after announcing the departure of Gianluigi Buffon and are heavily linked to the current United number 1, David de Gea. This has forced Ole’s side to look out for other alternatives.
Oblak signed a contract extension with Atletico in April, with his deal running until the summer of 2023 but United can pay his buyout clause to acquire his services.
