Manchester United prepare mega offer for Jan Oblak

Reports from the football world suggest that Manchester United are actively considering a sensational move in the January transfer window to acquire the services of LaLiga veteran goalkeeper Jan Oblak. This potential transfer comes on the heels of mounting concerns surrounding their major summer signing, Andre Onana.

Atletico Madrid

During the recent summer transfer window, Manchester United made headlines by shelling out an eye-watering sum to secure Onana’s talents. This move made him the third most expensive goalkeeper in the history of the sport. The initial transfer fee for the former Inter Milan goalkeeper amounted to a staggering £43.8 million, with additional add-ons pushing the total cost to an unprecedented £47.8 million. This hefty price tag has firmly established him as the third-highest transfer in the annals of goalkeeper acquisitions.

However, Onana’s arrival at Old Trafford has been far from ideal, with the goalkeeper experiencing a challenging start to his tenure, conceding a disheartening ten goals in just six appearances.

In light of these concerns, reports from Spain suggest that Manchester United is now setting its sights on Jan Oblak, the guardian of Atletico Madrid’s goal. Despite being a relatively only 30 years old, Oblak is about to embark on his remarkable 10th season with Atletico Madrid, where he has earned a reputation as one of the finest goalkeepers not only in Spain but also on the global stage.

According to, Oblak’s current market value stands impressively at 35 million euros, underscoring his immense worth in the world of football.

Oblak’s illustrious career with Los Rojoblancos includes an impressive tally of 398 appearances and a remarkable 193 clean sheets. Additionally, he has contributed significantly to the international arena, representing Slovenia in a total of 56 matches.

Interestingly, reports indicate that Atletico Madrid is holding out for a substantial transfer fee of €50 million for Oblak—coincidentally, a figure that mirrors the amount Manchester United paid to secure Onana’s services in the summer transfer window. If this high-profile transfer materializes, it could reshape the landscape of elite goalkeeping in European football and become a defining moment in Manchester United’s pursuit of success.
