Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for £30 million-rated Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak

According to the Mirror, Manchester United have made their move for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak, a move that will pave the way for David de Gea’s exit to Real Madrid.

Oblak joined Atletico last summer from Benfica and established himself as the club’s No.1 from March onwards following an injury to Miguel Angel Moya.

He played an instrumental role in the club's Champions League knock-out campaign - particularly in the two-legged tie versus Real Madrid - while he recorded seven clean sheets in just 11 domestic appearances.

The Spanish outfit are apparently demanding the £30 million get-out clause in the Slovenia goalkeeper’s contract is met by the Red Devils, but sources close to the club claim an offer in the region of £21.5m from the Old Trafford outfit will land his signature. 

The 22-year-old only recently arrived at the Vicente Calderon for €16million, and considering his contract lasts until the summer of 2020, Atletico are well within their right to demand a substantial bid.

Oblak is one of many 'keepers being touted as a potential replacement at Old Trafford, but he is certainly one of the leading contenders.

His performances at the highest level were enough to show his quality last season, and Louis van Gaal has clearly taken note.
