Man Utd boss ‘not really convinced’ by De Gea and targets ‘one of the best’ as new first choice keeper

The Red Devils could face competition from PSG to sign Atletico Madrid’s current number one. Dean Henderson is on loan at Nottingham Forest this season.

The goalkeeping situation at Manchester United has been a hotly debated topic over the past few months.

The Red Devils have retained David de Gea as their number one so far this season after loaning out Dean Henderson to Premier League rivals Nottingham Forest and bringing in Martin Dubravka from Newcastle United.

The Slovakian has not featured for Erik ten Hag’s side yet and de Gea’s form has been somewhat erratic this season.

That has led to French publication Jeunesfooteux to claim that the Spaniard has “not really convinced” the Dutch coach who could look to bring one of the highest rated stoppers in the world to Old Trafford...

“Manchester United are looking for a goalkeeper of international caliber for next season”

Per Jeunesfooteux, the Red Devils want to secure the services of Jan Oblak for next season.

The publication reports that Erik ten Hag will look to sign the Slovenian from Atletico Madrid after David de Gea failed to convince him he should retain his place as first choice stopper at Old Trafford.

The 31-year old, himself a former Atletico player, is out of contract this summer and his future looks to be undecided after over a decade as the main man between the sticks for the Red Devils.

Oblak, 29, is also out of contract in the summer and is considered by many to be one of the very best goalkeepers in the world.

It is also reported that there could be a twist in the story with United not the only side who could move to secure the Slovenian.

Apparently, Paris Saint-Germain are “not completely convinced” by Gianlui Donnarumma this season and could also be interested in Oblak.

In order to secure the services of the Atletico stopper, United are reportedly willing to offer him a yearly salary of €18 million.

Man Utd keeper situation could be big talking point for months to come

Both David de Gea and Dean Hendersons contracts will expire at the end of the season and Martin Dubravka will also return to Newcastle United when his loan ends.

United still have plenty of time to tie down the players on permanent deals but Henderson has previously been vocal about his desire to play regular football so would be unlikely to sign a new deal without such a guarantee.

If they do decide that they need a new number one then Oblak would no doubt be an excellent choice but interest in the Slovenian would almost certainly be high if he does not sign a new deal at Atletico.
