Man Utd could splash £104million to secure major signing


Manchester United are 6th in the Premier League table after 36 games, three points behind Chelsea, who currently occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.

In all fairness, I think the Red Devils should prepare for life without CL football for next season.

The Old Trafford club excelled big time when Solskjaer was appointed in place of Mourinho. However, in the past few weeks, they have been extremely poor and deserve to finish outside of the top four.

United need major reinforcements in the summer transfer window and as per reports, they are looking to sign a world class goalie in the form of Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak to replace David De Gea.

According to ESPN sources, Man Utd are seriously considering triggering the Slovenian shot stopper’s €120million (£104million) release clause to secure his signing.

The 26-year-old star is one of the best goal keepers in the world and he has what it takes to replace De Gea at Old Trafford. The Spanish international has arguably been United’s best player in the post-Ferguson era but in the last few games, he has been without doubt their worst player.

Against Barca, De Gea’s blunder gifted Messi the goal that basically killed the tie. The 28-year-old was embarrassed vs Everton, who scored four goals past him. He made two more blunders vs Man City and another howler in the last game vs Chelsea.

If De Gea does end up leaving the Old Trafford club then I think Oblak would be a top replacement.

The Slovenian star had the highest number of clean sheets in La Liga in the past three seasons and even in the current campaign, he is leading with 20 clean sheets (35 appearances).

In your view, should United get rid of De Gea and sign Oblak?


  1. No guarantee that De Gea will ever recover his previous very good form so a sensible, logical decision to replace him with world-class Oblak is clearly warranted. In addition a few more incoming players is also a necessary move. Defenders, strikers and midfielders. Decent purchases not like the previous misfiring, mediocre brand of the last few open windows.

  2. Let De Gea go because he is not ready to play for Man United again and when a player is not ready to play for a team and then you force he will be worse than before so united should let him go and sign Oblak
