Chelsea attempt forces Atletico Madrid to revisit Oblak contract talks

Atletico Madrid are ready to hand Jan Oblak a new contract.

The new deal will involve raising his buyout clause from €100m to €200m, says AS, after Chelsea's attempts this month.

Chelsea were prepared to meet Oblak's option, but the goalkeeper turned down a move to London which led to Chelsea signing Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao.

Oblak is currently tied to 2021 and Atletico would also seek to extend the agreement.

The Slovenian, 25, also attracted enquiries from PSG over the summer.
