Man United and Chelsea want Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak

Atletico Madrid could still have a great season if they win La Liga, but there are serious signs that they are running out of steam at the wrong time.

Chelsea have advanced fairly comfortably in the Champions League and every league game seems like a struggle at the moment, so there is a chance they will lose some big names this summer.

A report from Todofichajes even indicated that Jan Oblak wanted to move on after Atleti’s loss last night, and that Man United and Chelsea would be the most likely destinations.

His release clause is suggested to be at € 120m, but neither side is ready to go that high, but Chelsea are reportedly ready to test their resolve with an opening bid of € 80m. euros.

They still haven’t found their long-term answer in goal as Edouard Mendy is up and down with his performances, but Man United want to review their goalkeeper position as well.

Their offer would be different as they would be willing to offer David de Gea in exchange to return to his first club when there would also be money involved in this transfer.

United’s offer might be more appealing to Atleti as it solves the problem of trying to find a replacement, but Oblak is rightfully one of the best goalkeepers in the world so they won’t want to lose him if at all possible.

This suggests that it will be up to the player to make it clear that they want to move, but it would clearly be a huge improvement for both sides.
