Atlético Madrid are on the brink of signing Benfica goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

AS says Atletico will pay the €16 million in the player's buyout clause and he is set to join the Madrid club immediately.

Oblak did not return to training with Benfica in order to close the deal and could already be in the Spanish capital. Nevertheless, the move will not be made official until Monday.
