Reports: Man Utd Identify €120m De Gea Replacement

Out of form and almost out of contract, David de Gea has seen his star fall somewhat at Manchester United, and the club are now reportedly lining up a mega-money replacement for the Spanish goalkeeper.

De Gea was once the Premier League's outstanding goalkeeper, but a dip in form over the past two seasons has resulted in the Spain international being criticised from a number of quarters. 

The 28-year-old's downturn in form has coincided with interest from LaLiga giants Real Madrid, and De Gea is reportedly willing to turn down a massive deal worth €350 000 (R5.6 million) a week in order to join Los Blancos as a free agent next season.

United are now believed to be preparing for that eventuality and, according to talkSPORT, have identified Atletico Madrid shot-stopper Jan Oblak as the ideal replacement.

The Red Devils have had Oblak on their radar for some time and can reportedly sign the Slovenian shot-stopper by activating his €120 million (R1.9 billion) release clause.

Should United proceed with the deal, the 26-year-old would become the most expensive goalkeeper of all time, breaking the record amount of €80 million (R1.2 billion) Chelsea paid to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga last season.
