Oblak has a long-term deal in the Spanish capital through to 2023 with a whopping £120m release clause, which club president Enrique Cerezo appeared to confirm that the club would not negotiate upon.
Diario AS now claim their sources at Atleti indicate they are confident that the Blues will not be able to afford a deal to lure the Slovenian shot-stopper from the Spanish capital, with the potential arrival of Havertz adding to the concluded signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.
Leverkusen ace Havertz is likely to cost upwards of €100m and Chelsea’s transfer potential is unlikely to be able to reach to afford both the German playmaker and the Atleti goalkeeper.
Reports from the British press claimed the West London club were pursuing a move for Oblak, who is widely regarded as one of the world’s elite goalkeepers.
The reports have claimed that out-of-favour Blues shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga could be offered as part of Chelsea’s offer for Oblak, but this latest stance from Atleti appears to indicate they will not contemplate any such offer.
Atleti are highly unlikely to sanction a sale for Oblak, who is regarded among the world’s best goalkeepers and is vital for Diego Simeone’s side.
