A new door opens for Saúl

The 'Blues' will decide in the coming days if they go for the mattress midfielder. It already sounded for Barcelona, Liverpool and Manchester United.


Atlético de Madrid has several fronts open in the summer transfer market, but not all of them are aimed at the arrivals section. Although in recent days it has been Dusan Vlahovic who has taken the covers of the rojiblanca news, there is a name that has been the protagonist for much of the summer: Saúl Ñíguez. As Diario AS has reported, the departure of the Elche midfielder has been a hot topic in this transfer window. Now, with the end of the transfer period closer and closer, the youth squad of the mattress team returns to the front line of battle. And it is that the Premier League could have Saúl again.

According to the Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea will decide in the coming days whether to launch the signing of the Atlético de Madrid player. Although at the moment there is no type of advanced negotiation between the clubs or with the footballer, the London team does see a market possibility in Saúl given his situation at the club. Although he has been in the shop window all summer, even more so after the arrival of Rodrigo De Paul, the rojiblanco midfielder was a starter in the colchoneros' league debut against Celta de Vigo in Balaídos.

But this is not the first time the Premier League has knocked on Saúl's door during this transfer market. After Liverpool, which was preparing an offer of € 40M as pointed out from England, Manchester United arrived. Faced with the possible departure of Paul Pogba at the beginning of August, the Red Devils were interested in the situation of the rojiblanco, evaluating an offer superior to that of Jürgen Klopp's team. Later the failed barter with FC Barcelona between Saúl Ñíguez and Antoine Griezmann would also arrive. Now, given the possibility that Thomas Tuchel's team will go after the Elche, a new exit door opens for the still Atlético player.Chelsea's open fronts

A Chelsea that is in full swing this summer. Once the transfer of Romelu Lukaku is closed, and as Fabrizio Romano also points out, the Blues are immersed in the negotiations for Jules Koundé. Although the emergence of Trevoh Chalobah in the first team has been able to change the German coach's mind, the board of the London team is willing to sign the French player from Sevilla FC. It is now in the hands of Chelsea to prioritize the signing of Saúl Ñíguez to complete a fairly crowded midfield or the arrival of a defender with whom to reinforce the defense.
