According to the Metro, Manchester United are making preparations for a David De Gea exit in case he rejects a new deal at Old Trafford.
It's reported that the Spaniard wants to get much nearer Alexis Sanchez's £400,000-per-week salary, but United are not willing to give in to such demands as they try to avoid a domino effect of other players following suit.
There is believed to be a growing acceptance that De Gea could well leave this summer or the next, and United have had to begin looking at replacements for their four-time player of the year winner.
Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak is reportedly their No.1 target.
