Outgoing Atletico Madrid assistant manager, German Burgos has confirmed Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is interested in signing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

The 27-year-old is widely considered as the best goalkeeper in Europe and has a release clause of £108m in his contract. The Blues are ready to offer Kepa Arrizabalaga plus cash for Oblak.

When asked by Marca if there were any of his current players he would look to sign in a new role, Burgos said: “If I only quote one who would take me from Atletico de Madrid, it would be bad, I have to name them all.

“Look, the Russian (Abramovich) wants to take Oblak.”

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has responded to Chelsea’s interest in signing Oblak.

Simeone said: “It does not surprise me, every year our most important players are wanted by the best in the world.

“It is normal to always look for the best – and we have many. Some have left and others have stayed.

“It is logical and normal that anyone wants Oblak. He is our captain and an important player. I hope we can count on his work, which is enormous for Atleti.”
