A report claims that Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, a rumoured target for Manchester United and Manchester City, is open to a fresh start this summer.
Atletico Madrid reportedly face a tough battle keeping hold of midfielder Saul Niguez, amid strong rumoured interest from Manchester United and Manchester City.
The Premier League rivals are believed to be going head to head for the Spain international, who has a £130m release clause in his contract.
City require a long-term replacement for Fernandinho, while United need to freshen up their midfield.
Saul is already under contract at the Wanda Metropolitano until 2026, but AS reports that Atleti are keen for him to sign another new deal with a bigger release clause.
However, they are still waiting to hear back from the 24-year-old, and the report indicates that it could be bad news from Los Rojiblancos’ perspective as Saul is open to a fresh start away from the Spanish capital.
