After Griezmann, Atlético to improve Jan Oblak's contract

After revising the terms and conditions in Antoine Griezmann's contract, Atlético have plans to improve Jan Oblak's contract. Enrique Cerezo and Miguel Ángel Gil will honour the promise they gave to Simeone that none of his key players would be leaving the club over the summer. That includes Oblak, who has been on the radar of several of Europes top clubs including Real Madrid, PSG, Liverpool as well as a couple of Italian clubs. His buy-out clause, set at 100 million euros,  from an economic point of view for many of the big earner side, it's an accessible fee for a player who many feel is the best keeper around.

Minimal changes to the squad

Talks between the goalkeeper's agents and the club started last seasion and the player is due to meet with Atlético officials on his return from his summer holidays to negociate his new contract. Oblak will be handed a wage increase and like Griezmann, his retention fee will be hiked to 200 million euros. Simeone's idea is to maintain the backbone of the side while Atleti hope to add another striker during the summer transfer window with Edinson Cavani one of the options being studied.
