From England, they assure that Chelsea aims to make Jan Oblak play on their team next season. The Mirror reveals that the blue team would be considering making an offer; that would include goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga plus a significant sum of money. An important bet, although from Atletico Madrid. They do not contemplate for the moment getting rid of the Slovenian goalkeeper; who last season became one of the team captains.
A very important offer for which many consider the best goalkeeper in the world. Recall that Kepa arrived in London two years ago from Athletic Bilbao for 80 million euros. The most expensive goalkeeper in the Premier League ahead of Allison Becker of Liverpool. Oblak’s clause is 120 million euros; so the English would have to make a significant payment in addition to including the Biscayan in the operation. Something surprising in a market marked by the economic crisis derived from the Coronavirus pandemic.
At the moment at Atletico Madrid, they do not even consider the transfer of Oblak; which they consider one of their great stars at the moment. In fact, the club in recent years has always made a special effort to keep its most valuable players; it has done with Koke, Saul, or even Antoine Griezmann.
I close it is that in recent years the transfers between Atletico Madrid and Chelsea have become commonplace. Although there are some cases in which they have been back and forth such as the cases of Filipe Luis and Diego Costa. To them can be added players like Morata or Courtois who have also worn both shirts.
Despite the fact that Oblak is not going to achieve his fifth consecutive Zamora; he is still considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world and from England; they do not forget the great performance he had against Liverpool. A memorable match from the Slovenian that has put him back in the window, once again.
