Andre Onana, the Cameroonian goalkeeper was acquired from Inter Milan for a hefty initial fee of £43.8 million, potentially rising to £47.8 million with add-ons, making him the third most expensive goalkeeper in history.
However, Onana has encountered a challenging start at Manchester United, conceding 10 goals in the initial six games of the season and committing several uncharacteristic errors. This has sparked concerns about whether he can live up to the expectations associated with being a marquee signing.
In response to the uncertain goalkeeper situation, Manchester United is rumored to be contemplating an upgrade during the upcoming January transfer window.
According to reports from Fichajes, the club is eyeing Jan Oblak, the esteemed goalkeeper from Atletico Madrid.
Jan Oblak, aged 30, is widely recognized as one of the world’s premier goalkeepers, showcasing exceptional skills and consistency. Manchester United has previously been linked with Oblak, although no concrete offer has been made until now.
Atletico Madrid is reportedly open to selling the Slovenian goalkeeper for a fee of €50 million. Remarkably, this price aligns closely with the amount Manchester United invested in securing the services of Andre Onana.
