Jan Oblak wants to leave Atletico Madrid this summer and his preference is to join Manchester United, according to reports.

The 26-year-old has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world and signed a contract extension with Atletico in April which includes a €120 million (£107m) buyout clause.

But speaking last week, Oblak warned Atletico that he is ready to leave if the club’s hierarchy decide to sell their key players. ‘I will stay at Atletico as long as their ambitions match mine,’ he said. ‘And some people might think their ambitions have lowered, as big players have left.

‘I am sure the club will do everything possible to sign quality players. When I signed my new contract they gave me guarantees about the club’s ambition.’
