"Two clubs very interested in paying Oblak's release clause," says his agent
Miha Mlakar, the Atlético Madrid player's agent could not ensure the goalkeeper's continuation with the Spanish club.
Atletico Madrid have their work cut out for them this summer to keep Jan Oblak. The goalkeeper's release clause is €100 million and his agent, Miha Mlakar, says that "there are two teams especially interested in the player." There is little doubt that Oblak has turned himself into one of the premier goalkeepers in Europe and his form has not gone unnoticed.
His agent said in an interview with Goal that the list of suitors has been reduced to two but those two remaining teams are very interested. "It is too soon because there are still games to be played at international level, but definitely, as I have always said, there is plenty of interest in the best goalkeeper in the world. Especially two clubs with real interest in Oblak for next season," he said.
Italy is a non-runner
In addition, Mlakar said that one of the teams "is from the United Kingdom." He did, however, dismiss Italy as a possible destination and said, "In Italy, Juventus are the only top club and they have Buffon, who is in a Champions League final, and if you ask me, he can still play without issue for more years."
Oblak is about to win the Zamora award for conceding the least amount of goal in a season in LaLiga. If a team did pay his €100 million clause, he would automatically become the most expensive keeper in the world.
