La Liga

Atletico Madrid Reveal How Much Chelsea Must Pay for Jan Oblak

The La-Liga giant shot-stopper Jan Oblak has been linked with a move to the Stamford Bridge in this summer’s transfer market with the Blues manager Frank Lampard unconvinced about Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Atletico Madrid is reportedly open to letting the 27-year-old goalkeeper join the Stamford Bridge outfit but on one condition.

Atletico does not want to sell the Slovenian No.1, but they may be forced to because of the economic impact the pandemic crisis has brought.

With the Goal, the Blues will have to pay Jan Oblak’s €120 million (£110m/$137.5m) release clause to force contract talks with the Atletico Madrid shot-stopper.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has reacted to the Blues interest in Oblak.

Simeone explained: “It is normal that they want a shot-stopper of the characteristics and value that Oblak has and it doesn’t surprise me because he is very good.

“For us, he is powerful, very significant in the dressing room, he is our skipper.

“Year after year he has managed to advance in all the games, from goalkeeper to his handling with the group, and hopefully he can continue with us.

“It is proper to always look for the best, and we have many who are very decent, some previous campaign has left, others have stayed, and it is logical and proper for a footballer like Oblak to be loved by anyone.

“For us, he is our skipper, an important player year after year and hopefully we can continue to count on his work, which is tremendous for the La-Liga giant.”
