Cholo tells Atleti: Prioritise Oblak

Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simeone has instructed his board of directors to prioritise keeping goalkeeper Jan Oblak at the club.

Paris Saint-Germain reportedly want to bolster their goalkeeping department and view the Slovenian as the ideal upgrade, following attempts in the summer to sign the Atleti shot-stopper.

Reports in the Spanish and French press suggested the goalkeeper’s release clause of €100m was viewed as plausible by the French club.

However, Diario AS now state his Argentine Coach has told the club to reject any advances and work on a new deal to remove any clause.

Oblak won Marca’s Goalkeeper of the 2016/17 season award on Monday evening after a fine campaign with Los Rojiblancos.
