Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United have received a huge blow in their race to sign Atletico Madrid midfield maestro Saul Niguez, with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich said to have already striked an agreement for the player's transfer to the Allianz Arena this summer.
According to reports from Radio Marca (via Daily Mail), the Bavarians have agreed a £68million transfer fee with Atletico Madrid for the Spanish international and that the La Liga giants are now looking to reinvest the money in finding his potentially replacement.
Saul Niguez has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford over the past few years with several reports coming out last week that the 26 year old was eyeing a move to the club ahead of Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
However, the Red Devils will be forced to look somewhere else with the midfielder now heading to Bayern Munich as a potential replacement for Thiago Alcantara who left the Allianz Arena last summer for Premier League side Liverpool.
