Premier League giants Manchester United have not had as good a start as they would have hoped in the season. Despite a good start from the Manchester United squad against Chelsea, in which they won 4-0, things have gone not their way ever since. They only managed a couple of draws and had to face a defeat in their next three matches. To add to their misery of the season, David de Gea is reportedly set for a club exit in the January transfer window and club has recognised Jan Oblak as his replacement.

According to a report published by Express, Manchester United will lose David de Gea for a free transfer in January since his contract will lapse prior to that. While there are speculations regarding which clubs the star goalie will join, United have reportedly identified Jan Oblak as his potential replacement.

Oblak is currently part of the Atletico Madrid squad and is widely regarded as one of the best players in the world in modern-day football. However, United are expected to make any kind of official announcement concerning him only after the future of David de Gea is confirmed.

As far as De Gea is concerned, he is getting attention from teams like Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain and reports state that Juventus are in fact leading the race to rope him in. De Gea has not signed a new deal with Manchester United and thus would be available to sign a contract with other clubs in January 2020.
