Atlético doubts with Saúl

Liverpool are preparing an offer of 40 million euros for Atlético's 8. The rojiblanco club is open to a sale if a proposal arrives that satisfies everyone.


Saúl is the great hot potato of the summer at Atlético. In a market marked by the continuity of the champion block and the austerity in the reinforcements (shared so far also by its rivals), the great unknown is whether the 8 will continue one more year in the team. Despite having had a difficult season, he has suitors. According to reports from England, Liverpool is preparing an offer of 40 million through Elche.

When As told in March that Saúl was determined to leave Atlético, the first candidate to test the footballer was Bayern. But it soon seemed clear that the future of the player was to continue as rojiblanco or through the Premier. And Liverpool, who have lost Wijnaldum (free to PSG), are a perfect fit for Saúl, who feels that his style has a place in British football.

The next point is the figures. Saúl is one of the most important assets of the Atlético squad, with whom he has a contract until 2026 with an essential player cache. The clause is 150 million, a figure that is currently unattainable for any interested party. The rojiblanco club agrees to open the door to the footballer, but for an amount that satisfies everyone. From within the club they do not set a price, but they do expect to receive offers above those 40 million, being aware of how the market is due to the pandemic and the player's price.In his last year, he went from being the undisputed and most used player to losing his place in the eleven type of Simeone, although he never disappeared from the team. Either from the bench or taking advantage of absences from the starters, Saúl always appeared. Cholo acknowledged that he was not at his best, as did the player, although confidence has not ceased to exist. All in all, it went from 4,246 minutes in the 19-20 to 2,673 in the last. But it cannot be said that it was not relevant to the League.

Still, Saul understood that perhaps it was time to leave. In the last season, captain Koke, Lemar and Llorente formed the ideal triangle in the center of the field. Now comes De Paul, Simeone's request, to raise the competition. And Herrera pleases Cholo and Kondogbia, with a more specific role, he has to grow. His versatility plays in favor of Saúl. In Simeone's variable scheme, the player from Elche can occupy any position in the center of the field or on the left wing, although the player is not enthusiastic about this. But Saúl is not much less in the Atlético squad.

The Premier knocks on the door: United, Chelsea ...

Liverpool thinks about 8 to reinforce its midfield with a powerful footballer, with a hard leg, with a good strike and a great arrival at the rival area that made him the target of wish of many great of Europe. Now, after a difficult year, the medium feels that it can recover its best version if it starts a new adventure. Manchester United, who may lose Pogba, have not taken his eye off him for years and Tuchel also has him on his agenda for Chelsea. Saúl remains an object of desire in Europe.
