Saul Niguez future

Saul Niguez celrbates scoring on February 18, 2020

The future of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez has come under the spotlight amid rumours of a move to the Premier League.

The Spain international signed a nine-year contract in 2017 which ties him to Los Rojiblancos until 2026, with a release clause of £132m.

However, Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Saul and hope to be able to almost halve that asking price in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Manchester City have also been credited with an interest in the midfielder, who came through the ranks at Atletico and has been at the club since 2008.
