Oblak unsatisfied - Atletico consider David de Gea's return

Atletico Madrid consider returning David de Gea. The keeper could be available on a free transfer in 2023. In return, Jan Oblak should think about saying goodbye to the Rojiblancos. Man United would then be a potential target.

David de Gea has been the Manchester United goalkeeper for eleven years. The 31-year-old Spaniard was repeatedly criticized, but potentially he is still one of the best keepers in Europe. His contract with the Red Devils is only valid until 2023, but the club has the option for another year.

However, whether this will actually be drawn remains to be seen. De Gea is one of the absolute top earners in the team, and the new coach Erik ten Hag is not yet fully convinced whether the keeper suits his style of play. According to Sportbild, they are therefore seriously considering not taking the option and letting de Gea go free of charge next summer.

After 90 minutes of information, things could get really "romantic" in this scenario. Because Atletico Madrid is thinking about a return campaign. The 31-year-old was trained with the Rojiblancos and made 84 goals for the first team before moving to Manchester.

But the big question with De Gea returning is what would happen to Jan Oblak? The 29-year-old Slovenian has been at Atletico since 2014 and has since become one of the best goalkeepers in the world. Curious: Only in July did Oblak extend it for six years until 2028!

And yet there are rumors that the paths could part prematurely. Oblak is said to be pretty dissatisfied at the moment. At Atletico it is assumed that the goalkeeper could look for a new club. As 90min found out, the Premier League in particular is a lucrative goal for the 29-year-old.

Sources have confirmed that Atletico are already looking for a new goalkeeper, which could speak for a possible Oblak exit. There would certainly be a few clubs on the island that would have him high on their list. First and foremost there would of course be Man United, who have to look for a successor to de Gea. You could also look around for a Lloris successor at Tottenham Hotspur.

Atletico, on the other hand, seems to be exploring the goalkeeper market. With Oblak you could get a big fee. In addition to De Gea, there are two other Spaniards on the list: David Raya from Brentford and Robert Sanchez from Brighton.
