Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak, according to ESPN FC.

It is understood that the Madrid keeper has a buy-out of £103million, which the Red Devils could trigger.

The Slovenia international recently signed a new contract with Atletico in April, but his buy-out clause has only increased by £17million.

This could tempt Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer into purchasing the experienced shot-stopper.

United currently have David de Gea in goal, however his recent poor form, which has seen him make numerous errors, has led to people questioning the Spain international.

David de Gea could be on his way out of Old Trafford.

De Gea has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid for a couple of seasons now and may be looking for an exit from Old Trafford with his contract up in 2020.

It is clear that United will want to replace De Gea with world-class quality but Oblak has made it clear that he would only leave Atletico for a team playing in the Champions League – something his suitors could miss out on.

The Red Devils are currently sixth in the Premier League and with two games to go are three points behind Chelsea in fourth.
