Man United intent on signing £42.7million star before deadline – Report

Saul Niguez Atletico

Brazilian star Fred was the last major signing completed by Manchester United as far as the central midfield is concerned. The Samba star arrived three years back when Jose Mourinho was in charge.

Since then, the Red Devils have not reinforced things in the center of the park. Ole brought two CAMs in the form of Fernandes and Van de Beek, the latter has warmed the bench whereas the former has been a superstar.

Transfer: Man United lead to finally secure signing of £130,000 a week star next summer

It is time for the Norwegian manager to lure a proven quality central midfielder and Spanish international, Saul Niguez, has been heavily linked with the Old Trafford outfit.

According by Marca (via Sport Witness), the 26-year-old midfielder has decided to leave Atletico Madrid and is looking to complete a move before this month’s deadline.

The Spanish media source have mentioned that at the moment, Man Utd are intent on signing the Rojiblancos star but they face competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea.

As revealed by Sport yesterday, the English clubs do not intend to meet the asking price of £42.7million to hire the services of Saul and a loan to buy option is in the focus.

The Colchoneros star is a proven quality midfielder but he was out of form in the title winning campaign last term. To replace him, Atletico have already signed Argentine international Rodrigo de Paul.

In your view, should Ole finally secure the signing of a central midfielder in the form of Saul Niguez?


  1. Damn right Ole should. Saul is better than what we have now and definitely will strengthen our CM. Also, for such a deal! You could never have gotten such a deal a year or two ago. Get him on loan with option to buy before Chelsea does! He will otherwise strengthen our competitor and we will be left to regret later on if we dont get him into our side!

  2. Manchester United definitely needs to strengthen central midfield where Fred doesn’t measure upto the required level. Fred’s mistakes in midfield had resulted in many goals against our team and he is definitely not good enough to play for this team. So, please get Saul before the transfer window closes and make our team real title challengers.
