Man Utd spy cut-price deal for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul

Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez is on the summer shopping list of Manchester United.

The 26-year-old has been on United’s radar for some time though his £128million buy out clause was an obvious obstacle.

However, with Atletico under increasing financial strain, there is a growing belief a deal could be struck this window closer to £45m, says the Daily Mail.

United want a top level midfielder with Paris St Germain ready to make an offer for Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, who figured against QPR on Saturday, weighing up his options.

Saul is under contract until 2026 and is one of Atletico’s highest earners. He has been offered to Barcelona and Juventus in recent weeks, indeed talks had developed over a swap with Barca’s Antoine Griezmann only for wages to become an issue.

Liverpool also admire Saul but they are unlikely to buy unless they sell another midfielder.
