Manchester United are interested in Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez, according to the Daily Express.
The report cites that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the player would be a perfect fit for his midfield, with the La Liga side valuing the 25-year-old at £135m.
Saul’s reputation has soared over the last two years, after establishing himself as a key cog in Diego Simeone’s industrious side. He is a consistent starter for Atletico, operating as a box to box midfielder down the left channel.
Fans saw just how effective the player can be over Madrid’s two legs against Liverpool, with Saul not shying away from his defensive duties. He is experienced in pressing high up the field, a trait that could spark some resilience into United’s midfield three.
It won’t be a straightforward deal to conduct though, due to his importance to the Spanish side. However, should Paul Pogba leave United, Saul looks to be the ideal replacement for the Frenchman.
