The 23-year-old player can effectively play anywhere in the center of the park and also in the attack if needed.
Last season, he directly contributed in 11 goals in all competitions for the Rojiblancos. However, he was only a bench warmer for Spain at the World Cup and did not even feature for a single minute. Under new boss Jose Enrique, he has played two games for Spain so far and scored two goals.
Niguez’s current contract with the La Liga club will expire in 2026 and it has a massive clause of 134 million pounds (OK Diario).
As per the provided link OK Diario, the likes of Man United, Man City and PSG would even be willing to activate the release clause to secure the signature of the versatile midfielder. In your opinion, should United get rid of Pogba and replace him with Niguez?
