The African shot stopper was brilliant in the final of the FA Cup but it will be fair to say that his overall performance throughout the campaign was average.

In such a scenario, reports indicate that the Red Devils are once again in the market for a new goal keeper and a world class star is in the lime light.

According to TDF, Jan Oblak seems close to leaving Atletico Madrid in the summer and Man Utd are interested in hiring his services.

The Slovenian shot stopper, who has been voted the best Goalie in the La Liga on numerous occasions, could end up leaving for the Premier League or Saudi Arabia.

The Spanish source claim Man Utd are willing to put a ‘good sum’ on the table to sign Oblak from the Rojiblancos.

His current contract at the Wanda Metropolitano will expire in 2028 and he earns the highest salary at the club of around £305,000 a week.

Last season, the 64-capped star made 38 appearances in the league under Diego Simeone and kept 13 clean sheets for Atletico.

Oblak has regularly played in the UEFA Champions League throughout his career, something he will have to give up for next season if he opts to join Man Utd.

Have your say – Should United sign a new No.1 for the 2024-25 campaign?
