Atleti look to Oblak as Courtois' replacement

TRANSFER: Courtois to Chelsea speculation heated up by Atletico's Oblak hunt

July 3, 2014 By Emiliano Malizia
With Thibaut Courtois on his way back to Chelsea, Atletico Madrid look to Oblak as a replacement.

The almost certain move by Thibaut Courtois back to Chelsea, caused a chain of events that will affect Atletico Madrid and Benfica. In fact, Atleti are looking at the goali of the Portuguese club, Jan Oblak.

Thibaut Courtois, who belongs to Chelsea but spent 3 years on loan at the Rojiblancos, has yet to make an appearance for the London club. However, now the Belgian keeper’s arrival at Stamford Bridge seems inevitable, as Cech gets ready to leave.

Courtois is rumored to go back to Stamford Bridge and make his first appearance for them

This has caused Atletico Madrid to look for a replacement, which they may have found in Benfica’s goalkeeper, Oblak. The Slovenian keeper will cost the Spanish champions a sum around €20M. In order to lower the amount, Atleti may insert Josuha Guilavogui in the deal.

Jan Oblak had an impessive season with Benfica

The French midfielder arrived at the Vicente Calderon for €10M and is believed to be a prospect of great interest. Therefore, the Rojiblancos may offer Benfica €10-12M cash plus the services of Guilavogui, in order to sign Oblak.

Guilavogui has not had much plying time with Atleti, but remains a promising player
