Chelsea fans urge club to swap Thibaut Courtois for Jan Oblak this summer

According to a report by Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, via TeamTalk, La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are worried that Chelsea could match goalkeeper Jan Oblak’s €100m (£87.2m) release clause this summer, and Blues fans have all suggested they swap the Slovenia international for Thibaut Courtois instead.

Reports suggest that the Belgian stopper – who has been much-maligned by the Stamford Bridge faithful in recent weeks following some disappointing displays, including the one in the 3-0 defeat to Barcelona – is keen to return to Madrid to be closer to his family.

While Real would probably be his preferred destination, Atletico could also be an option given he has already spent two seasons on loan with them previously.

Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on the link to Oblak and Courtois via social media, and while one said “swap him with Courtois please”, another said “give them Courtois in return”.
