Real Madrid could trigger the £107m release clause of Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak next summer, according to a report.

Real Madrid could reportedly trigger the £107m release clause of Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

The 26-year-old has developed into one of the best stoppers in world football over the last couple of seasons, keeping a staggering 123 clean sheets in 217 appearances for Atletico in all competitions.

The Slovenia international is contracted to Diego Simeone's side until the summer of 2023, although it is understood that the deal includes a release clause of £107m.

According to El Desmarque, Los Blancos are planning a move for the goalkeeper in next summer's transfer window due to concerns over current number one Thibaut Courtois.

The Belgium international has struggled to make his mark at the Bernabeu since arriving from Chelsea in 2018, while he has already conceded 11 times in eight appearances this season.

Alphonse Areola is currently back-up to Courtois at Madrid, with the 26-year-old joining Zinedine Zidane's side on loan during the summer as part of the deal which took Keylor Navas to Paris-Saint Germain.
