Manchester United’s Goalkeeping Conundrum: Is A Golden Handshake A Feasible Option?

Manchester United’s Goalkeeping Conundrum: Is A Golden Handshake A Feasible Option?”

Jan Oblak reportedly wants a move to Manchester United after concerns for the competitiveness of Atletico Madrid's squad next season.

Oblak wants Atleti to match his ambition and is considering his options, with PSG also in the running after announcing that Gianluigi Buffon would leave in the summer.

This summer has seen Atletico defenders Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin and Juanfran all leave the club.

However, a source told ESPN FC that United are in the chase for Oblak, despite the fact that they will not be playing in the Champions League next season.

However, United must cough out about £107m to meet the Slovenian's £107m buyout clause, with additional reports from ESPN claiming the 26-year-old is a boyhood United supporter and "favours a move to Old Trafford over Paris Saint-Germain".

Oblak has become one of the best goalkeepers in world football since joining Atletico from Benfica in 2014 with his sensational performances between the sticks helping Diego Simeone's side forge a reputation for having one of the meanest defences in Europe.

There is interest in Oblak from PSG as well, but the shotstopper would prefer a move to Manchester United should David de Gea leave in the summer over failed contract negotiations.

According to UK Sun report, Spanish shot-stopper David De Gea is still refusing to pen an extension at Man United, with Red Devils chiefs are now considering Atletico Madrid goalie Oblak as a possible replacement.

- When are the Premier League fixtures published?

Last season Oblak kept 20 clean sheets in 37 La Liga appearances, with Atletico finishing in second place behind Barcelona.
