Saúl Ñiguez is an old dream in Old Trafford and the need for reinforcements from the Mancunians has awakened him. Manchester's interest is real and very strong, although the operation is not simple. The purpose of the mattress for this winter market is the well-known arrival of a leading striker (Cavani has already been tested), an operation for which They need to sell 80 to 90 million first. In this way, the name that shuffles the club offices to generate that value is Thomas Lemar, the galactic signature arrived last summer and did not adapt to Cholo's style.
However, if the offer desired by the Frenchman did not arrive, Saul's departure would change planesas the main thing for the club is to strengthen the attacking front. In addition, the renewal of the canteran contract remains in neutral. Atleti has already responded to United's interest in Saul in the summer and reactivated a contractual improvement that was paralyzed again.
The illicitan would have suffered the collateral damage of the soap opera Pogba, since the English were willing to pay the 150 million contained in its termination clause if the French had landed in Madrid. Such renewal would not imply an extension of the contract, expires on June 30, 2026, nor an extension of the clause mentioned, as you can confirm this newspaper.
Boy for everything
Saul is one of the rojiblanco team's heavyweights and his march would be a blow to a Simeone that exploits the versatility of the player to the extreme. Without going further, the usual midfielder He was chosen by Cholo to act as left back against Barcelonain Wanda last December 1 (0-1). The rojiblanco & # 39; 8 & # 39; is the most used field player by Argentina this season, with 1800 minutes spread over 20 games (only Oblak and his 1866th outperform).
Manchester United's recent results (wins against Tottenham and City) were a stimulus by the work of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has been riding a real roller coaster since his arrival as Mourinho's replacement last season. The summer hires of the red demons were focused on strengthening the defensive structure (Maguire, Wan-Bissaka), then from England, they point out that the Norwegian received promised money to add gunpowder to the Mancunians. And Saul is the first name in the list.
