Jan Oblak Wants To Quit Atlético Madrid And Join Manchester United This Summer

Jan Oblak Wants To Quit Atlético Madrid And Join Manchester United This Summer

Manchester United have been put on red alert after Jan Oblak has told Atlético Madrid that he wants to leave the club in the summer.

According to ESPN, the 26-year-old shot-stopper is ready to quit Los Rojiblancos and favours a move to the Red Devils over Paris Saint-Germain.

And it has emerged that Oblak is unsettled at the Spanish club after the departure of a number of important players from Diego Simeone's squad.

Lucas Hernandez will be moving to Bayern Munich, while Diego Godín, Filipe Luís and Juanfran are all expected to leave this summer.

Antoine Griezmann has also revealed that he will quit the club and is linked with a move to Barcelona.

United could rekindle their interest in Oblak as a replacement for David de Gea, who has been linked with a move to PSG.

And it seems that the Atlético star would push for a move to Old Trafford, despite United missing out on Champions League football.

United have been keeping tabs on Oblak in recent months, with ESPN claiming that the club were ready to trigger his €120m buyout clause in April if De Gea quit the Red Devils.

But a move for Oblak would not come cheap for United after the player committed his future to the club back in April.

His 20 clean sheets in 37 appearances were four more than the 16 that Barcelona's Marc-André ter Stegen, who made 35 appearances in the league, had to his name in second place.

Atlético signed Oblak from Benfica back in 2014 for a fee of €16m.

The Slovenian established himself as Simeone's first choice between the sticks and has made over 150 appearances for the club.

Would Oblak be the ideal replacement for De Gea?
