Chelsea transfer news and rumours live: Ben Chilwell ‘on hold’, Thiago Silva set to sign

Atletico ‘scared’ Oblak could join Chelsea

Atletico Madrid are ‘scared’ that Jan Oblak will join Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The Blues are in the market for a new first-choice goalkeeper to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga and Oblak has been touted.

Now, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague suggests that the La Liga side are concerned by Chelsea’s interest.

“Atletico Madrid are scared that Oblak will listen to that proposition, to that offer, which could arrive if Chelsea feel that Oblak will be willing to leave.

“Because the buyout clause is so high, and you’re talking about the most expensive goalkeeper in history, and that’s something that Chelsea will have to obviously try to reduce for Kepa to go the other way.

“Right now, from Atletico Madrid they’re saying and [Diego] Simeone is saying that everything starts with Oblak, that he needs to stay.

“And my understanding is that right now at this stage there has been no offer from Chelsea at all. So we’ll have to keep an eye on it.”
