A Manchester United fan could soon be their next goalkeeper.

Atletico Madrid star Jan Oblak – a boyhood supporter of the Red Devils – is reportedly keen on a move to Old Trafford.

Talk of Oblak comes at a good time, with uncertainty continuing to hang over David de Gea's future at United.




Atletico's  exodus could continue, with ESPN FC claiming  Jan Oblak  wants to leave LaLiga's runners-up following broken promises over his future.

Oblak is apparently keener on Premier League side  United  than Ligue 1 champion  Paris Saint-Germain  as Antoine Griezmann prepares to leave after the departures of captain Diego Godin, Lucas Hernandez, Juanfran and Filipe Luis.

The 26-year-old only signed a new Atletico deal until 2023 earlier this year. The report is music to the ears of United fans, with David de Gea no closer to signing a new contract amid reported interest from PSG.

Goal reports that Bundesliga side  Eintracht Frankfurt  could use the money from Luka Jovic's sale to buy the 23-year-old. Champions League holder Liverpool is reportedly unwilling to accept anything less than £25m.

- Sticking with the Germany- Liverpool  theme and the Reds have ruled out signing  Werder Bremen  striker  Max Kruse , says the Liverpool Echo.

- According to Sky Sports,  Tottenham  could sign  Marseille  right-back  Hiroki Sakai  if  Kieran Trippier  leaves Spurs.

PSG  is confident of signing  Ajax's  in-demand captain  Matthijs de Ligt , per The Independent. The French giant is reportedly offering the 19-year-old centre-back the biggest financial package amid interest from Barcelona and United.

United  is refusing to entertain offers for  Real Madrid  target  Paul Pogba , AS reports. It comes as La Gazzetta dello Sport claims  Mario Mandzukic, Douglas Costa, Juan Cuadrado, Joao Cancelo  and  Mattia Perin  could be sold by  Juventus  to fund a move for their former midfielder.

Arsenal  must raise its bid for  Sampdoria  pair  Joachim Andersen  and  Dennis Praet  after having a €48m offer rejected by the Serie A side, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
