Atletico Madrid consider De Gea return with Oblak unsettled

Atletico Madrid consider De Gea return with Oblak unsettled

Atletico Madrid are considering offering Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea

a road back to the Spanish capital (ATM) in 2023.

De Gea is out of contract at the end of the current season, and while Manchester United

have an option to trigger a year’s extension to his deal, no decision has yet been made

on the goalkeeper’s future.

The Spaniard is one of United’s senior players and highest paid player, and his ability to

adjust to new manager Erik ten Hag’s style of play has come into question since the

Dutchman’s appointment. He is expected to remain as the club’s number one for the season

ahead but doubts over his future remain in the long term.

Atletico Madrid, meanwhile, are considering their options in goal ahead of next season,

despite having agreed on a new six-year deal with current number one Jan Oblak in July.

The deal has not been officially confirmed by the club, however, it is understood to have

been signed.

Oblak’s form has dropped off this season and despite the contract only recently being signed, he is understood to be unsettled at the club at present. He is now understood to be considering his options and a departure in the next year is possible, with Atletico scoping out potential replacements in case it happens.

The 29-year-old is not short of admirers, many of which are from the Premier League, and 90min has been told that playing in England is a huge ambition for the player. Chelsea, Tottenham, and Manchester United have all been linked in recent years.

They have been linked with Aston Villa’s Emi Martinez, but 90min understands that they are actually keeping close tabs on three Spanish internationals, namely Brentford’s David Raya, Brighton’s Robert Sanchez, and De Gea.

Raya and Sanchez are both hoping to start for Spain at the World Cup finals, and Atletico have been keeping tabs on both since last year.

De Gea still has plenty of fans within the city of Manchester, but he is one of the club’s highest earners and head coach Erik ten Hag is understood to be undecided at this point as to whether extend his stay.

De Gea has long been linked with a return to Spain and almost joined the Los Blanco in 2015.
