Jan Oblak set for new Atletico Madrid deal

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak is set to pen a new contract at the club despite interest from Manchester United, report Marca.

The Slovenian shot-stopper is set to extend his current deal at Los Rojiblancos – which runs through until June 2021 – by a further year which will, significantly, increase his €100m release clause.

There are few details of the new deal in the report, but it has previously been mooted that the goalkeeper’s release clause will move to €150m while he is in line for an increased wage.

The 26-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain but this new deal is set to increase his annual wage packet to €10m.

The Slovenian international has developed into one of the world’s elite goalkeepers in Madrid since his €16m transfer from Benfica in 2014.

Oblak has been a regular in Diego Simeone's starting line-up across the past four seasons and his renewal has long been seen as a priority.
