MANCHESTER UNITED may turn to Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak if Juventus land David De Gea, according to reports.
As revealed by SunSport, Spaniard De Gea has told friends he will snub the Red Devils’ £350,000-per-week contract offer.
He is out contract at the end of the summer and international team-mates reckon he may decide to run his current deal down and talk to other clubs in January to arrange a free transfer in the summer.
According to the Express, Serie A giants Juventus are the front-runners and will try to open talks with De Gea early next year.
De Gea, 28, is seen as the ideal improvement on current first-choice stopper Wojciech Szczesny at the Allianz Stadium.
Juventus are the masters of securing big names on free transfers when their previous contract expires and De Gea could join an illustrious list.
The likes of Dani Alves, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and of course Aaron Ramsey have all arrived in Turin for nothing.
But the signing of De Gea would surely be the greatest of all coups so far.
And if United do lose their No1, reports suggest Oblak would be the first-choice replacement.
