Manchester United have reportedly targeted Atletico Madrid star Jan Oblak, making him a key transfer target for the summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already has one of, if not the world’s best goalkeeper in David de Gea but it appears he believes otherwise.
The Spaniard has been in poor form of late, making costly errors in the losses to Barcelona and Manchester City, while singlehandedly causing United’s draw vs Chelsea.
De Gea has looked strangely human for the first time in his career and Solskjaer has publicly backed him despite the errors.
Oblak is another who football lovers claim is the best in the world so he would prove to be an adequate replacement for the former Atletico Madrid man.
According to ESPN, the Red Devils are seriously considering triggering Jan’s €120m release clause, throwing David’s future into even more doubt.
The rumours smells of those in charge at Old Trafford attempting to ease fans’ concerns over their star’s future.
It could be that Manchester United are trying to scare De Gea into committing as it shows they have a willingness to look elsewhere.
There have been other reports claiming the club are happy to allow the 28 year old to enter the final year of his contract as they don’t believe he will leave.
