Mundo Deportivo have poured cold water on Tottenham’s hopes of signing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper, Jan Oblak.
The report claims that links to England this week seem to be based on Oblak having less than one year remaining on his current contract, when in actual fact he has already signed a new six-year deal, it just hasn’t been made public yet.
Fichajes.net reported earlier this month that Tottenham were keen on Oblak, even claiming the player was stalling on a new contract to explore other options.
The Evening Standard then added that talks had been held between Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici at looking toward Oblak as Hugo Lloris’ successor.
90 min also claimed that the Atletico Madrid goalkeeper was interested in a move to a Premier League club, but pointed toward this new six-year contract as a hurdle.
Mundo Deportivo mention the idea of Tottenham using Sergio Reguilon as a makeweight, but add that it ‘does not seem very realistic’ considering he is yet to even make his debut.
Spurs Web Opinion:
The Oblak rumours were always a little far-fetched, especially considering it would have left Spurs with both Hugo Lloris and Oblak for the 2023/24 season. Honestly, I expect Hugo to stick around until 2024… and why not beyond?
