Saul Niguez in demand by Barcelona and Manchester United


It’s generally trusted that Atletico Madrid adolescent Saul Niguez is one of the best youthful players in Europe and he affirmed that idea on Wednesday night as he struck a brilliant solo goal to help his side secure a semi-final first-leg lead over German outfit Bayern Munich.

The talented midfielder, who is just 21-years-old, has gone from quality to-quality in La Liga over the span of the campaign and searches set for stardom.

Obviously, then, the player’s future has been the subject of debate as of late and it appears that there are a few prominent clubs inspired by his signature.

To be sure, Sky Sports intellectual Guillem Balague proposes that the twosome of Barcelona and Manchester United could make a move for him.

It won’t be easy for United to secure his administrations, notwithstanding, as Balague claims that Barca have an agreement to sign him in the event that they match an offer from another club.

Joined together AND BARCA INTEREST

In a Q&A session for Sky Sports, the Spanish football master stated: “Saul has a purchase out clause of 45m euros. There is a clause since the David Villa transfer to Barcelona, a clause that says Barcelona can equal any offer and can take him.

“Barcelona are intrigued, and so are Manchester United. He has a place 40 for every penny to Jorge Mendes, and we’ll have to see. The last renewal offer from the club has been rejected by Saul, yet the club will keep on negotiating.”


For the time being, however, the player’s immediate center will be on helping his side maintain their La Liga title challenge and secure their place in the Champions League final.

Right now level on focuses with Barca at the summit of Spain’s tip top division, Diego Simeone’s side have everything to play for in the quest for achievement.

And after beating Bayern by one goal to nil on Wednesday, Atletico will trust that they can succeed in Europe and eliminate Pep Guardiola’s side.

It won’t be easy, obviously, yet there’s no reason why Simeone’s tactically brilliant side won’t deliver the products by and by one week from now.
