Even though he’s above 29, Atletico Madrid is not leaving any stone unturned and would make the most out of the sale of Jan Oblak, who’s reportedly on the radar of top European clubs.
The Slovenian goalkeeper has remained at the Madrid-based club for eight years and continues to perform at the highest level, which has continued to interest top clubs.
According to Fichajes, Atletico Madrid eyes a mouth-watering sum of 30 million euros for the sale of Jan Oblak probably in January and invest the money in his successor.
Although Atleti’s demands could be unrealistic, there’s a desire at the club to make the most out of the sale of the goalkeeper. The Rojiblancos had already identified Aston Villa goalie Emiliano Martínez as the best candidate to replace the Slovenian.
Fichajes also reveals top clubs like Manchester United are monitoring the situation closely as they eye the veteran to be the successor to David De Gea. Tottenham Hotspur are also listed as a top destination.
Jan Oblak is willing to make a change and has been waiting for a suitable offer. He is one of the best goalkeepers in Europe and deserves to be in a top club.
The 2015–16 La Liga goalkeeper of the season could be on his way out of the club in January.
