Manchester United target Saul close to joining the English Premier league side
Manchester United Saul Niguez transfer deal is close to completion, according to reports from Spain. There have been a number of reports in the last two months linking the Spaniard with a move to Old Trafford.
The sports news here is one from Todofichajes.com claims that a fee has been agreed and that a deal is practically concluded.
The deal, however, will only go through if Paul Pogba leaves United. The €80 million/£70m figure was also recently reported by AS.com as the amount the Red Devils are willing to offer for Saul, giving further support to Todofichajes’ claim.
‘The club is aware that Pogba has many possibilities to leave in the summer and have set their sights on [Saul Niguez] to fill his position’ the outlet claims.
‘According to the information we handle at TodoFichajes, Saúl is very close to becoming a Manchester United player.’
‘The Spanish international has a termination clause of €150M but the economic circumstances surrounding the world of football will reduce his freedom to €80M [£70m].’
The 25-year-old is considered one of the best central midfielders in the world but his €150 million (£131m) release clause has made him untouchable in the transfer market until now.
