Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez has been loaned to several Premier League teams as he continues to seek a way out of the Wanda Metropolitano.
Saul was told he could leave the club this summer and was originally expected to join Barcelona, which was pursuing an exchange deal, in exchange for which Antoine Griezmann returned to Athleti, but negotiations broke down and Saul found himself in limbo.
Moving to the Premier League seems to be the only option for Sol at the moment, given the financial potential. Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United all were associated with the 26-year-old, but so far none of them have shown sufficient interest in the permanent deal.
With his disabilities, Telegraph note that Saul was now offered on loan in the hope that his suitors would be happier to borrow him on a temporary basis.
There is no mention of exactly which parties received this offer, but it’s safe to say that the aforementioned trio will receive the call along with the rest of the Premier League elite, and Sol’s agents are keen to decide his future as soon as possible.
English reactions are also unclear, but this report, which focuses on Chelsea’s transfer business, notes that the Blues will only sign a new midfielder this summer if there is an opportunity they cannot refuse.
Chelsea have prioritized the £ 97.5m move for Romelu Lukaku and remain interested in Sevilla center-back Jules Counda, so they certainly don’t have the money to sign Sol on a permanent basis this summer. …
The possibility of getting Sol on loan may well be of interest to Liverpool, which AS Note prepared a € 40 million offer for the 26-year-old before other English teams came in and made matters more difficult.
90 minutes understands that Liverpool executives have warned Jurgen Klopp that he must sell players before he can buy new ones, so the chance to get Sol on the cheap may be too good to pass up.
As for United, Sol’s move seems unlikely as Paul Pogba intends to remain at Old Trafford for at least the next 12 months.
