Jan Oblak asked about his future amid transfer links to Manchester United
Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak was coy on his future when asked about the possibility of him moving on from the Spanish club.
Reports have emerged in recent weeks suggesting United are plotting an audacious swoop for Oblak and are prepared to use David de Gea as a makeweight in the deal, attempting to remove the Spaniard’s hefty £375,000-per-week earnings from the wage bill.
While it seemed the momentum was firmly behind Dean Henderson as the battle for the number one role at Old Trafford was beginning to reach its conclusion, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer threw this into doubt when preferring De Gea in the final few weeks.

However, if the fresh details of United’s interest in Oblak are true, then it could suggest that neither stopper could be at the club next campaign, which would be a spectacular and unexpected development.
