Manchester United's David de Gea boost as Real Madrid look elsewhere

Real Madrid are pondering over a summer move for Atletico Madrid's goalkeeper Jan Oblak, if moves for Chelsea's Courtois and Manchester United's David De Gea fail.

Oblak is reportedly keen on making the switch from the Vicente Calderon Stadium to Old Trafford, with De Gea expected to move on after several seasons of interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid, according to the Mirror.

The Slovenia worldwide has established himself as first-choice at Atletico in recent years and could be interested in a move to Old Trafford.

However, the Portuguese confirmed that De Gea would continue next season at the club. It is believed that Real Madrid have angered their cross city rivals Atletico by also weighing up the signing of their keeper, Oblak.

United have been keeping a close eye on Keane since they sold him to Burnley for a fee of about £2 million in September 2014.

The Argentine global has impressed manager Jose Mourinho this season as a more than able deputy to De Gea - so much so that he is set to earn a new contract in the coming weeks.

De Gea very almost joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2015, but due to the paperwork not being submitted on time, the move fell through.

So if neither of Real's first choice options are allowed to leave in the summer, it is likely Zidane will make a move for Oblak.

That's because the Daily Star state that Mourinho has made Jan Oblak his number one target if De Gea does leave and is lining-up a £40m swoop for the Atletico Madrid goalkeeper.

In recent weeks it has nearly seemed as when, and not if, the player will move back to the Spanish capital.
