Transfer rumors have started emerging and one that will be difficult to look past is the reported interest of Manchester United in Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez.
Niguez has established himself as a capable athlete and will be instrumental for any team as he has proven in Spain. The 25-year-old has carved a niche for himself at the Wanda Metropolitano and La Liga as one of the top midfielders in the game in recent times.
The Spaniard has made a whopping 286 appearances for Rojiblancos and has scored 38 goals in the process. He also has 18 assists to his name. He offers a lot on the pitch and his defensive prowess from the middle of the park is one that will fascinate rival clubs.
He also combines strength, agility, and neat accurate passes that make him stand out. He appears to be one of the underrated players although he has been a key man for the Diego Simeone-led side. He has also been playing his role on the pitch nicely and effectively.
The speculations of a potential departure from Atletico Madrid came to life after he made a cryptic tweet and shared that he will be suiting up for a new club.
A report by Red Devil Armada claims that Saul Niguez is being closely monitored by Premier League giants Manchester United.
It appears that the player’s style is the perfect fit for the Red Devils with his explosiveness and dribbling skills from the middle of the park. He also offers relentlessness and an extraordinary change of pace which will be a big boost to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
Although Paul Pogba is still in Man United’s books, his recent injury worries are a cause for concern. Therefore, no doubt including a player of Saul’s quality will add quality depth to the team, as well as effectiveness in midfield.
Teams are beginning to get back to shape as football action across the major leagues in Europe nears return after being on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Regardless, the news of Saul Niguez heading to Manchester United is one that should be expected and will make the rounds ahead of the summer.
