“The Premier League has strong teams,” Oblak told Guillem Balague. “Maybe the strongest. But I think in the end it is what the coach is asking of you. You listen to his instructions.

“You are one of the 11, so you do what he asks of you. All the players on the pitch are thinking like that. It doesn’t matter if it’s the Premier League, Italian league, Spanish league, wherever you go you need to do what the coach is asking you to do.

“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.”

Oblak has a release clause of £103m.
