Press Releases Jan. 29

Liverpool will need to stump up €100million if they want to activate Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak’s release clause, though they will have to move fast.

The Merseysiders have made signing a new shot-stopper a priority after current No.1 Loris Karius made two costly blunders in the Champions League final against Real Madrid, gifting the Spanish giants two decisive goals.

Liverpool’s preferred targets are believed to be Roma keeper Alisson, who starts ahead of Manchester City star Ederson for Brazil, and Oblak.

While Roma would likely demand a fee in excess of £70m for Alisson, Liverpool know exactly how much they would need to pay to sign Oblak: £87.5m.

That figure is the release clause inserted into the contract Oblak signed back in 2016, which extended his stay in Madrid until 2021.

Chelsea break club policy in offer for Manchester United target

The original terms of his deal had a release clause of just £35m – a bargain in today’s market – and Atletico are negotiating to increase it even further.

With Liverpool, PSG and other European giants all sniffing around, Atletico have reportedly opened talks with Oblak over another new contract that would increase his release clause to a mammoth €200m (£175m).

The 25-year-old Slovenian is considered the best goalkeeper in La Liga and has won the Zamora trophy for best shot-stopper in three consecutive seasons, conceding just 61 times over that period.

Were Liverpool to swoop in and pay Oblak’s £87.5m release clause before Atletico manage to negotiate a new contract, he would almost triple the current record fee for a goalkeeper (the £35m Man City paid for Ederson).
