United boss Jose Mourinho would prefer to keep the Spaniard in place at United and has said he will still be at the club in pre-season, but Oblak is his top target to replace him should he move to the Spanish capital.

Manchester United look set to lose top keeper David de Gea to Real Madrid this summer but Old Trafford legend Alex Stepney believes there is an obvious English replacement.

The Red Devils are desperate to keep De Gea at the Theatre of Dreams, but know they will have a fight on their hands as long-time admirers Real Madrid, who nearly signed the keeper in 2015, remain heavily interested in the player, who is also said to have a lifelong dream of playing for Los Blancos.

Many feel Jose Mourinho is preparing for the 26-year-old's exit and the Daily Star claim that executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward could be left with no choice but to sanction a £60m deal with Madrid this summer.

I would want, at the very least, United's best player for at least two of the last three seasons sitting beside me in case I needed him.

The Argentina worldwide could earn a new contract in the coming weeks despite acting as a reserve to De Gea for much if his stay in Manchester.

"Maybe I have a decision in my head when he took the ball and I say he is shooting in the right and I go there and it is very good for the group and also for me".

Smalling has started only 12 Premier League games because of foot and knee injuries this season, but Mourinho has questioned the 27-year-old's dedication to the club, suggesting that he should play through the pain barrier. Joel will play against Crystal Palace and Sergio will play in the final.
