Manchester United are looking to strengthen their midfield department this summer and they are consistently linked with Saul Niguez, whose future at Atletico Madrid is uncretain.
As per the latest update provided by Mundo Deportivo (news image provided below), the Red Devils and Juventus have the most options as compared to their competitors to sign the Spanish international this summer.
The 26-year-old’s current contract at the Wanda Metropolitano outfit will expire in the summer of 2026 and it has a huge release clause of 150 million euros.
However, the renowned Spanish media outlet have claimed that the Rojiblancos are willing to agree a fee of £68m (80m euros) for his sale.
As mentioned above, the Old Trafford outfit and the Old Lady are the two most interesting clubs, howewver the Premier League giants have the edge. Not so long ago, The People reported that the La Roja star wants Man Utd move ahead of the Bianconeri this summer.
The 19-capped international is a multi-talented star, who has been utilized in multiple defensive, midfield and attacking positions by Atletico boss Deigo Simeone.
The Colchoneros did win the Spanish title last season but Saul’s performances were not consistent and therefore, he was unable to earn a spot in the national team squad for the ongoing Euros.
Man Utd have not adequately reinforced things in the center of the park for three years and Ole should lure a proven midfielder this summer. Do you think Saul Niguez would be a quality addition?
