Saul to Manchester United
Manchester United are ‘very close’ to signing Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.
That’s according to Spanish website Todofichajes, who claim negotiations between the two parties are ‘practically closed’ with the agreement to be ‘made official’ at the end of the 2019/2020 campaign.
Saul, 25, has a £131million release clause in his current contract, that doesn’t expire until June 2026.
But the financial impact of the Coronavirus could force Diego Simeone’s side to sell for around £70million to balance the books and generate funds for their own transfer plans.
Todofichajes claim midfielder Paul Pogba has a ‘very good chance of going’ in the upcoming window and the 19-capped Spain international is his direct replacement.
