Atlético Madrid mull selling Oblak: Transfer rumours swirl

Atlético Madrid gear up for a summer of pivotal changes in their squad ahead of the upcoming season. One of the positions sparking intense speculation is the goalkeeper slot. Jan Oblak, once undisputed between the posts, now finds himself in a less secure position, potentially paving the way for the club to entertain offers for the Slovenian goalkeeper.

Under the stewardship of Carlos Bucero and Andrea Berta, the club’s sporting direction aims at revamping to ease the team’s financial burden. Oblak, commanding one of the highest wages, finds himself under scrutiny. Despite being tied to the club until 2028 with a release clause of €120 million, reports from AS suggest the club may entertain offers for the goalkeeper.

Oblak, cognizant of the shifting dynamics, recognizes that only a select few players are deemed indispensable at Atlético. While he has rebuffed offers in the past, such as one from Arabia the previous summer, he might now be open to a move, especially to the Premier League, a destination that has always intrigued him.

Meanwhile, Atlético have identified Giorgi Mamardashvili, Valencia’s goalkeeper, aged 23, as a promising candidate to reinforce their goalkeeping ranks, given his impressive performances for the Valencia team. Valued at €35 million, Valencia might be willing to negotiate around €25 million, a sum Atlético are willing to consider.

Mamardashvili not only brings youth and promise but also experience and quality, making him a captivating signing for both the present and future of the red-and-white club. With Valencia needing to offload players, Atlético finds themselves in a favorable position to secure the services of the talented goalkeeper.
