Manchester United want to close deal for €100million star

Manchester United superstar David De Gea is the best goal keeper in the world and the Red Devils must hold on to him no matter what happens.

However, if reports in Spain are anything to go by then the Spanish international could be leaving Old Trafford to finally join Real Madrid.

According to Diario Gol, the 27-year-old goalie’s agent met with Los Blancos president Florentino Perez to discuss the transfer of De Gea, who has always been keen on returning to Spain to be close to his girlfriend and family.

The Spanish source have mentioned that Manchester United want to close the deal to sign current Atletico Madrid goalie Jan Oblak before letting the former Rojiblancos star leave the club.

Liverpool are also reportedly interested in hiring the services of the Slovenian international, who has got a huge release clause of €100million in his contract (Don Balon).

The 25-year-old star has been brilliant under the management of Argentine boss Diego Simeone. Last season, Oblak conceded only 2 goals in 6 Europa League appearances to help his club win the competition.

As far as the La Liga is concerned, the former Benfica player featured in 37 league games and kept no fewer than 22 clean sheets. In all fairness, he has got what it takes to replace De Gea at Manchester United.

  1. Sounds like hogwash to me. When a team already has the best shot-stopper in the world, no disrespect to Oblak and others, but why trade down?
