UEFA:Man Utd identify new goalkeeper to replace De Gea after Europa League defeat

Manchester United are ready to swap goalkeeper David De Gea for Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak, according to the UK Sun.

De Gea was the centre of attention on Wednesday night, as United lost to Villarreal on penalties.

The Spaniard failed to save any of the spot kicks and then missed the decisive one as Unai Emery clinched his fourth Europa League title.

Oblak is regarded as one of the best stoppers in the world and could solve the ongoing question over who will become first choice at Old Trafford.

Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is willing to offload De Gea, in a bid to drive down Oblak’s £70million asking price.

United have also signed Tom Heaton on a free transfer, bringing the 35-year-old back to the club after several years away.
