The new season has started and Manchester United have not been able to sign a midfielder as yet. The Red Devils have not strengthened the central midfield since the summer of 2018.
Therefore, Ole should move to sign a top star. Reports indicate that a versatile Spaniard in the form of Saul Niguez could end up agreeing a move to Man Utd before the closure of the transfer window this month.
Transfer: Man Utd intend to secure signing of £34million player – Report
Earlier in August, The Sunday People revealed that the Old Trafford club are in the box seat to hire the services of the La Roja star from Atletico Madrid.
More recently, Spanish outlets (AS and ABC) have covered stories and stated that the 26-year-old could leave the Rojiblancos this month and as far as the potential destinations are concerned, Man Utd and Liverpool are mentioned.
As per AS, the 19-capped international, who is naturally a midfielder, has been used as a left-sided defender by Simeone in the pre-season as there is no space for him in the center of the park.
The news source reported that Man Utd have been insisting on securing the signature of Saul and Atletico could even sell him on the deadline day if the right offer arrives.
Similarly, ABC mentioned that the player, who has a contract until 2026, is no longer essential at the Wanda Metropolitano and could be allowed to leave this summer.
As far as the market value is concerned, Man Utd can strike a deal with the La Liga title holders for £45million (The Daily Mail). Do, you think, Ole Gunnar Solskjker shoud splash the cash to secure the signing of Saul Niguez?
