Jan Oblak has insisted he’s in no hurry to leave Spanish champions Atletico Madrid, but the keeper admitted he still could be sold if the club need to raise funds.
The 28-year-old lifted his first LaLiga title last season, playing all 38 matches and keeping more clean-sheets than any other keeper in the league – in another season which confirmed Oblak’s place among the world’s best shot-stoppers.

Manchester United were linked with a move for Oblak but it looks a tough task to sign him
Oblak has insisted that he’s happy with life at the Wanda Metropolitano, and had no interest in stoking talk of a move away.
‘I can’t see the future, neither myself nor the club nor anyone can,’ the Slovenian told Marca.
‘It will depend on a lot of factors, such as if the club needs to sell any players or not.
‘I have nothing to say about my future, I have been at Atleti seven years and I have two years left on my contract.

David de Gea and team-mate Dean Henderson have impressed enough this season for United
‘I have played more than 300 games here and, while I enjoy having won La Liga Santander, I’m not thinking about anything else.
‘I’m here, I’m happy. We’ll see what the future brings.’
Oblak has a £103m release clause in his Atleti contract and has a deal extending into 2023 at the club, putting the Spaniards in a strong position to keep their stopper.
Instead of a summer switch Oblak looks set to focus on a title defence next season, and can expect to have Joao Felix alongside him once again. The striker has shut-down talk of a move away, after his game-time was reduced by Diego Simeone.
