Ending the season with two runners-up, Manchester United are looking to strengthen the squad with Sancho, Saul’s top target.
According to recent information, Atletico Madrid will be ready to sell Saul Niguez to Manchester United for £68 million this summer. The Old Trafford team is actively working in the transfer market, to improve the squad to compete for the first title under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The player on the Atlético staff, since his debut in 2012, is a versatile player who possesses a great technical background, the ability to attack and defend smoothly, so integrating into the general style of play at Man United and the competitive environment in NHA is only a matter of time. Not to mention at MU, De Gea is a compatriot and former teammate at Atletico’s youth team.
With the failure of coach Luis Enrique to be summoned to the national team to attend Euro 2021, Saul feels extremely disappointed and is considering the future of leaving the Wanda Metropolitano home team. With the service of Atletico star, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has many options for his midfield, along with the versatility of the 26-year-old star will have many approaches to the game. The Norwegian is said to be unhappy with the current options of Fred, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic in midfield and wants a new player for the position.
Saul has a contract until 2026 and a £128m (£150m) release clause, but Atletico are ‘ready’ to sit at the negotiating table if he gets £68m (£80m). This is still considered a fairly high price, in the context that the Red Devils still consider Jadon Sancho (£95m) as the number one target in this summer transfer window.
