Oblak unstable at club, Atletico considering signing De Gea

Atletico Madrid are considering signing Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, according to 90Min. De Gea's contract expires this season, and although United have the option to extend his contract for another year, he has yet to make a decision.

De Gea is a United veteran and one of the highest paid players. Since Eric Ten Haag took over, his ability to adapt to the new manager's style of play has been questioned. He is expected to continue to be the club's No. 1 player next season, but his long-term future remains in doubt.

Atletico Madrid are considering target options for next season's goalkeeper. In July , they signed Jan Oblak to a new six-year contract, although the club has yet to announce it. Oblak 's performances have dipped this season, and despite being on a recently signed contract, he is understood to be inconsistent at the club at the moment. Oblak is considering his options and could leave next year, with Atletico looking for a potential replacement just in case.

It is understood they are keeping a close eye on three Spain internationals, namely Brentford's David Raya, Brighton's Robert Sanchez and De Gea. Both Laia and Sanchez want to start for Spain in the World Cup final, and Atletico have been keeping tabs on both players since last year. The player Atletico do not need to do much is their former star De Gea, whose contract expires in 2023 but is currently being negotiated internally at Manchester United over an extension.
