Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez has said that he is "flattered" to be linked with Manchester United.
The 25-year-old is believed to be a long-term target for the 20-time English champions, who are thought to have scouted him on a number of occasions during the 2019-20 campaign.
There are currently no indications that a bid is imminent for the Spain international, who still has six years left to run on his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano.
However, Saul has said that he is "very flattered" to be mentioned as a potential target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, who are preparing for the start of their new Premier League campaign next weekend.
"I am very flattered that a club like Manchester United or other teams that ask about me take me into consideration, for me it is very positive. And that strong people in those clubs speak well of you means that I am doing things well at Atletico Madrid," Saul told Marca.
The midfielder was again an important figure for Diego Simeone's side during the 2019-20 campaign, contributing seven goals in 47 appearances in all competitions.
