Oblak instead of Onana? False news.
Manchester United are unlikely to change their first-choice goalkeeper in less than a season.
The Red Devils have ambitiously cleared out the goalkeeping position ahead of this season. They signed Andre Onana as their new first-choice goalkeeper, replacing ‘legend’ David de Gea, who had been the ‘ironclad’ for over a decade. Dean Henderson, who was in the running for De Gea’s job, was also released, so you can imagine how much faith they had in Onana. He signed a five-year contract. The transfer fee alone was €55 million.
But it was a shaky start. He conceded a whopping 15 goals in his first nine games, including four in the Champions League group stage against Bayern Munich. Onana was singled out as one of the reasons for United’s early struggles, as he made costly mistakes.
In response, there were local reports that the Red Devils were taking a second look at Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak. The Red Devils have been linked with Oblak since early on, but have been unable to make a move for him, leading to Onana. With Onana struggling, it seemed like a natural progression to turn to Oblak.카지노
However, journalist Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in European soccer, called the news a complete “hoax. “It is true that Onana’s departure was not easy. But it can take time for a player from a new country to adapt at a new club,” he said, adding, “The rumors about Oblak are completely false. There were no talks between United and Oblak. United invested a lot of money in Onana and they still trust him. It makes no sense for United to be in contact with Oblak at this stage.”
Onana has shown signs of life, keeping back-to-back clean sheets in EFL Cup and league games against Crystal Palace and Burnley. In his most recent league game against Crystal Palace, he conceded a goal, but the local analysis is that he is definitely improving.
