Should Chelsea listen to the words of former Tottenham and Man United striker Dimitar Berbatov, they will be moving to the Spanish La Liga club, Atletico Madrid for the signature of Jan Oblak this summer transfer window.

The West London outfit are no longer comfortable with the performance of Kepa Arrizabalaga with Frank Lampard considering another option for next season’s challenge.

The Blues have already secured the signatures of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech and are now focused on landing Bayern Leverkusen star Kai Havertz as their next target.

Dimitar Berbatov has therefore stated that the Blues team should ensure the Atletico Madrid shot-stopper is made the next target to have a complete team for next season’s campaign.

According to him, the Frank Lampard team will surely struggle without a better goalkeeping option, stressing that they will have a great one in Jan Oblak.

Meanwhile, Man United have since indicated an interest in the signature of the Atletico Madrid player as they are also unsatisfied with the performance of Spanish goalkeeper, David De Gea.

However, the La Liga club values the Jan Oblak very high and are not interested in losing him despite making his £130 million price tag known to the suitors.
