Man United set to make surprise January move for La Liga No.13 stopper

By | November 24, 2022

Atletico Madrid shot-stopper Jan Oblak has been linked with a move away from the Spanish club in recent weeks, with Man United reportedly interested. Man United will make a move for Slovenia international next summer. With De Gea set to be out of the deal at the end of the campaign, Erik ten Hag will be looking for a new number one.


However, Los Colchoneros are working on tieing Jan down to a new contract. La Liga giants are looking to extend Oblak’s deal, as he’s considered a crucial figure at the club, but things could change if any interested club firms up their interest. However, Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that there’s been no concrete interest in the shot-stopper.

The Red Devils may still look to secure David de Gea a new deal, but as it stands he will leave on a free transfer. There have been question marks surrounding David de Gea’s ability to play out from the back, so the Dutch coach may be looking for a shot-stopper more comfortable with the ball at his feet.

“Atletico Madrid have been working to extend Oblak’s contract for a long time now. During the summer transfer window, talks were very advanced so Atletico Madrid remain optimistic,” said Fabrizio Romano. “We will see how contract talks go in the near future but for now, there is nothing advanced or concrete with other clubs.”
