Manchester United are favourites to sign Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid this summer, but Manchester City are also in the running according to a bookmaker.

Manchester United and Manchester City are leading the race to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, according to a top bookmaker.

The 25-year-old sparked intense speculation over his future on Sunday by revealing that he will announce a "new club" this morning at 10am BST.

United had previously been heavily linked with a summer move for Saul, with some reports claiming that a deal between the two parties was "practically done" last month.

Bookmakers have United as the clear favourites to sign the Spain international, with one suspending betting on that transfer, but Man City are also thought to be in the running.

Saul has a release clause of £132m in an Atletico contract which runs until 2026, although interested parties are hopeful of signing him for closer to £70m.

Sports Mole took an in-depth look at the imminent announcement and whether Manchester United fans are right to get excited by the prospect of signing Saul.
