David de Gea Real Madrid transfer could see Sergio Romero step up

David de Gea Real Madrid transfer could see Sergio Romero step up

Manchester United will bring in Jan Oblak, if Real Madrid finally gets David De Gea this summer.

However, it appears as though he isn't the only goalkeeper being linked with a move to Man Utd this summer, as the Manchester Evening News claim that Benfica's Ederson is also on the transfer shortlist.

United will demand £60m for De Gea and manager Jose Mourinho has identified Oblak as a potential replacement for the Spain global.

He has played second fiddle to De Gea in the Premier League, starting just two top-flight games.

Both U.S. and British officials have declined to comment on whether there is a warrant for Assange's arrest. But there is also a warrant issued by a British court after he skipped bail in June 2012.

Oblak is reportedly keen on making the switch from the Vicente Calderon Stadium to Old Trafford, with De Gea expected to move on after several seasons of interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid, according to the Mirror.

Should De Gea leave, which is far from guaranteed at the moment, Mourinho will have a big decision to make over his keeper situation.

United paid £18.3m to sign De Gea from Atletico as Edwin van der Sar's replacement in the summer of 2011, but with the 26-year-old's long-time girlfriend, the Spanish singer Edurne Garcia Almagro, continuing to live in Madrid, there is an acceptance within the Old Trafford hierarchy that the player will seek to return to the Spanish capital at some point in the near future.

United remain in pole position to land Oblak having made the most progress of the interested Premier League clubs in convincing Atletico to sell.
