Man United prepared to offer David De Gea in a swap deal to sign £70M target

Published

Manchester United are willing to use David De Gea as part of their bid to sign Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak, according to reports.

The Slovenia international is widely regarded as one of the world’s best goalkeepers and has played a key role in Atletico’s success since his move to Spain in 2014.

United, meanwhile, have a tricky goalkeeping situation on their hands as Dean Henderson is pushing hard for De Gea’s place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

However, Henderson has also failed to convince when he’s deputised for De Gea this season and according to The Sun, United are now planning a bid for Oblak this summer.

The report claims that Solskjaer’s ‘closest advisers’ have been urging the United manager to sign Oblak from Atletico.

And it’s claimed that United are prepared to include De Gea as part of their deal to land Oblak, who is valued at £70 million.

United initially signed De Gea for £18.9m from Atletico in 2011.

And during his time at Old Trafford, the Spain international has helped the club win the Premier League, the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the Europa League.

De Gea has also won United’s Player of the Year award on four occasions – more than anyone else in the club’s history.

But a dip in form over the past 18 months has put pressure on Solskjaer to rethink who will be his first-chocie goalkeeper.

De Gea started ahead of Henderson for United’s Europa League final on Wednesday evening but missed the crucial spot kick in the penalty shootout to hand the trophy to Villarreal.

After the final whistle, De Gea was consoled by Sir Alex Ferguson as he left the pitch.

However the Spaniard’s £375,000-a-week wages complicate the issue massively.

And at least De Gea might be more willing to be flexible if it cleared a path to returning to his former side.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
