According to a recent report from Marca, Atletico Madrid are confident that Jan Oblak will sign a new contract with the club this summer.
This confidence comes despite the fact that Premier League side Chelsea are known to be interested in trying to sign him, with there being a ‘calm tension’ over the rumours at this stage.
The Blues want to move on from Kepa Arrizabalaga, and Oblak serves as a pretty intriguing replacement option if they’re able to lure him to Stamford Bridge.
Both clubs find themselves in similar positions right now, but with Chelsea spending money like it’s going out of fashion, they may be the more appealing of the two.
For now, Atletico will be hoping that they can keep Oblak based on the loyalty that the two parties have shown to one another during this stay thus far. Then again, that often doesn’t get you very far in this sport.
