CHELSEA are lining up a summer swoop for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak, should Real Madrid follow through with their plan to bid for Thibaut Courtois.

The Galacticos have been pursuing a new goalkeeper for years now, with Manchester United stopper  David De Gea  the No1 target in recent windows.

But ever since a fax machine blunder on deadline day in 2015,  Real  have since swapped their focus to Blues stopper,  Courtois.

The Belgian No1 has already spent time during his career in Madrid, following three massively successful seasons at  Atletico.

Antonio Conte  knows  Zinedine Zidane  is interesting in bringing the giant keeper to the Bernabeu and has already set about finding a replacement, particularly as Courtois and his family enjoyed their time in the Spanish capital.

Slovenian stopper Oblak appears to be the man for the Stamford Bridge chief, according to  Goal, after impressing in La Liga.

Chelsea will hope to keep hold of Courtois – who leads the Big Five leagues in Europe for clean sheets with 13 this season – but are aware Madrid are readying a monster bid. The suggested sum would smash the record for a goalkeeper, currently set by  Gianluigi Buffon, who broke all sorts of records when he left Parma for Juventus in 2001 – for a £47.5million fee.
