“You never know” – World-class Chelsea and Man United target leaves door open for Premier League switch

Posted by

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has seemingly left the door ajar for a Premier League transfer.

Oblak is widely considered one of the best goalkeepers on the planet. The assurance of having him between the sticks provides the foundation for Atletico’s sturdy back-line.

As reported by Goal, he has been linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea, although, neither side has any dire need for a new keeper at current.

Nevertheless, if either side does want to add Oblak to their ranks, they have just been given a great amount of encouragement that the player himself would be on board.

Jan Oblak could have his head turned by the prospect of a Premier League transfer.

Obak is quoted by Goal when asked whether he could picture himself playing in the Premier League, and Oblak refused to rule out the possibility of a move to England:

“I don’t know. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I am sure that in any league I would play I could play well. You never know what will happen in the future.

“Now I have been in Spain for seven years. Let’s see. I’m still young. Not so young anymore, but I still have some years in front of me.

“The most important thing for me is the hope that I do not suffer any injuries. Let’s see what the future will bring.”

Even a club without a need or desire for a goalkeeper ought to consider the possibility of signing Oblak. Rarely does a goalkeeper of that calibre become available.
