Atletico Madrid are reportedly ready to sell Saul Niguez, the Spanish midfielder
is a target for Chelsea and Manchester United, with Liverpool, also claimed to be
interested in his signature.
Niguez is expected to quit the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium this summer,
despite only signing a nine-year contract in 2017.
The 19-cap Spain star still has five years to run on the deal but Diego Simeone now
appears happy to sell.
Saul Niguez has been hotly linked with a swap deal involving Barcelona, which would
see Antoine Griezmann, 30, return to the Spanish capital after just two seasons.

But now, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed talks between the two LaLiga
giants have stalled, at least for now. And that has opened the door to other clubs,
with multiple Premier League teams in for Saul.
Romano tweeted: “After another day of negotiations, there’s still no final agreement
between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid for Griezmann-Saul swap deal.
“Talks ongoing but no agreement yet. “Saul also has received bids from Premier
League clubs. “Atleti are prepared to sell him.”
