Saul Niguez is coming to Manchester United if the reports published in the Telegraph are true. Atletico Madrid are ready to forego their best asset if Manchester United are ready to offer the right price, which would be £85million in this case according to The Telegraph.
It is to be noted that Niguez has a release clause of £125million, a figure few would dare offer to trigger it.
Top echelons at the Old Trafford that Saul Niguez, who would be replacing Paul Pogba in the starting XI, would be bringing the much-needed energy back into the squad, according to the The British source.
Pogba, though phenomenal at times, has never lived up to his potential at Man Utd and if someone like Niguez can replace him, then I think that the supporters would be extremely delighted.
Saul can effectively play anywhere on the pitch but naturally, he is a box to box midfielder, who can dribble and strike the ball well. Back in 2016, he went past three Bayern Munich players and scored a sublime solo goal in the semis to knock the German giants out of the Champions League.
At the weekend, Atletico Madrid defeated Osasuna 2-0 and the 25-year-old scored his team’s second goal of the game. The versatile star has already made 19 appearances for La Furia Roja and scored three goals.
We do lack quality and depth in the central midfield after not replacing the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera, who left Man United in the past two transfer windows. In such a scenario, Niguez would be a top addition if Solskjaer can somehow get his signing done.
