Atletico Madrid play hard-ball with Chelsea over Oblak sale

Atletico Madrid are refusing to consider negotiating a sale price for Jan Oblak.

The Atletico goalkeeper is a top summer target for Chelsea, where they're eager to sell and replace Spain No1 Kepa Arrizabalaga.

However, AS says Atletico are referring Chelsea to Oblak's buyout clause.

The Spanish giants are insisting Oblak will not leave for less than the €120m escape option in his contract.

There's a confidence Oblak will stay committed to Atleti and not kick up a fuss - even if Chelsea urge him to.
