Manchester United are reportedly making a move for Jan Oblak (Getty)

Manchester United are willing to use David De Gea as part of their bid to sign Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak, according to reports.

The Slovenia international is widely regarded as one of the world’s best goalkeepers and has played a key role in Atletico’s success since his move to Spain in 2014.

United, meanwhile, have a tricky goalkeeping situation on their hands as Dean Henderson is pushing hard for De Gea’s place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

However, Henderson has also failed to convince when he’s deputised for De Gea this season and according to The Sun, United are now planning a bid for Oblak this summer.

The report claims that Solskjaer’s ‘closest advisers’ have been urging the United manager to sign Oblak from Atletico.

And it’s claimed that United are prepared to include De Gea as part of their deal to land Oblak, who is valued at £70 million.

United initially signed De Gea for £18.9m from Atletico in 2011.

And during his time at Old Trafford, the Spain international has helped the club win the Premier League, the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the Europa League.

De Gea has also won United’s Player of the Year award on four occasions – more than anyone else in the club’s history.

But a dip in form over the past 18 months has put pressure on Solskjaer to rethink who will be his first-chocie goalkeeper.

De Gea started ahead of Henderson for United’s Europa League final on Wednesday evening but missed the crucial spot kick in the penalty shootout to hand the trophy to Villarreal.

After the final whistle, De Gea was consoled by Sir Alex Ferguson as he left the pitch.
