Manchester United are reportedly eyeing Atletico Madrid keeper Jan Oblak to replace David de Gea next summer, according to a report which was published by The Express.

The contract of the Spaniard at Old Trafford is due to expire at the end of the season and he has been linked with a move away from the Red Devils.

De Gea has arguably established himself as the Premier League’s best goalkeeper during his time at United and losing the Spain international would be a blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

That said, Oblak is also one of the world’s best keepers and has the potential to succeed at Old Trafford.

However, if de Gea does leave, United should look into promoting a keeper from within their own ranks before they consider forking out to bring in a new keeper. Oblak is unlikely to come cheaply.

United do have Sergio Romero within their ranks who is a capable keeper in his own right.

They also do have Dean Henderson, who is on loan with Sheffield United. The young star has shown tremendous potential and is arguably one of the brightest young talents in English football.

He has definitely shown that he is capable of challenging for the United first-choice keeping position in the future.
