Liverpool and Chelsea are reportedly prepared to rival Manchester United in the race to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.

Liverpool and Chelsea are reportedly monitoring any developments with regards to the future of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.

With the Spain international no longer a certain starter under Diego Simeone, the La Liga champions are open to cashing in on his signature.

Barcelona and Manchester United have both been heavily linked with the 26-year-old, particularly the latter who are eyeing up potential alternatives for Paul Pogba.

However, Marca claims that Liverpool and Chelsea have been in contact with Saul's representatives about a potential transfer.

Liverpool require a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, while Chelsea are in the market for a new central midfielder after allowing Billy Gilmour to join Norwich City on loan.

The report adds that Old Trafford remains the player's most likely destination.
