Manchester United are set to bolster their squad for next season. Their participation in the Champions League and the urge to win Premier League after several years, have pushed them to look for top talents in Europe.
According to a Spanish publication, El Gol Digital with a citation from Manchester United Evening News, the Red Devils are willing to offer €80million for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez this transfer window.
The 26-year-old is the product of Atletico Madrid academy and he made his debut in 2012 when he was just 17 which was followed by a loan spell at Rayo Vallecano the following year.
After the successful outing with Rayo, Saul became a regular under Diego Simeone, amassing 337 appearances in all competitions for the Spanish giants and scoring 43 goals while setting another 19 in the process.
The transfermarkt states that the Spanish international has a contract with Atleti until June 30, 2026.
Manchester United will be looking to have Saul in their books to partner Paul Pogba in the midfield as other midfielders like Fred and Donny Van De Beek have not been on their best in the past season.
