Jan Oblak would prefer a move to Manchester United rather than Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to a report in England.

ESPN is reporting that the Atletico Madrid goalkeeper is ready to leave the La Liga side ahead of the 2019-20 season.

The same article states that Manchester United are interested in a potential deal to sign the Slovenia international in the upcoming transfer window.

According to the same story, Oblak is a boyhood Manchester United supporter, which should give the Red Devils a slight edge over their rivals.

The report goes on to add that Ligue 1 giants PSG are also keeping tabs on the Atletico shot-stopper ahead of a potential summer bid.

The ESPN article goes on to add that Manchester United declined to comment when contacted about the possibility of a swoop for Oblak.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in the Champions League next term.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been tasked with overhauling the Manchester United squad in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils boss took over the reins from Jose Mourinho back in December before he was handed the role on a permanent basis in March.

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013.
