Jan Oblak has played down speculation he could be set for a transfer to Manchester United in the summer and insists he’s ‘happy’ at Atletico Madrid.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper has been a mainstay of Diego Simeone’s Atleti side since completing a move from Benfica back in 2014 and played a key role as the club won their first La Liga title in seven years this season.

However, there have been rumours that United are planning an audacious bid to secure Oblak’s signature as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to strengthen his squad, despite the shot-stopper having two years remaining on his current deal in the Spanish capital.

It’s been claimed the Red Devils would even be prepared to use David de Gea as a makeweight in a potential deal for Oblak but it appears the Slovenia international is in no hurry to switch clubs.

‘I can’t see the future, neither myself nor the club nor anyone can,’ Oblak told Spanish publication Marca when asked for an update on his future.

‘It will depend on a lot of factors, such as if the club needs to sell any players or not.

‘I have nothing to say about my future, I have been at Atleti seven years and I have two years left on my contract.’

Oblak added: ‘I have played more than 300 games here and, while I enjoy having won La Liga, I’m not thinking about anything else.

‘I’m here, I’m happy. We’ll see what the future brings.’  

Oblak has made 303 appearances across his seven-year stay with Atletico Madrid, helping the team win the Europa League, the Supercopa de Espana, the Super Cup in addition to their recent league triumph.

He was recently awarded the Ricardo Zamora trophy after ending the season with the lowest goals-to-games ratio (0.66) of any goalkeeper in the Spanish top flight.
