The list of wishes of Manchester United this summer is long Jadon Sancho has already arrived, but that is just the beginning. Rafael Varane from Real Madrid is someone they wait for. Kieran Trippier is their wish as well. They contacted Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes, an offer was sent for Leon Goretzka from Bayern, and the latest news from England is that Manchester United want Atletico's Saul Niguez again.
It has been mentioned for a long time that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a Spanish defensive midfielder, but the problem was compensation. The redemption clause in the contract is an enormous 150,000,000 euros, but they are aware in Madrid that in times of financial difficulties for clubs due to the corona pandemic, it will be difficult for them to get that money for the 26-year-old football player.
Hence, Daily Mail writes that the Spaniard will agree to almost three times less, ie 52,500,000. Allegedly, that is the figure that United is ready to pay, because Manchester is afraid of the departure of Paul Pogba to Paris Saint-Germain, and maybe even Nemanja Matić.
In the case of the Serbian national team player, there is no more detailed information, except to "consider his options" It is difficult, however, that Matic will leave the club this summer, since he will enter the final year of his contract next year, so he will be in a much better negotiating position with those interested.
As for Saul, the experienced footballer is also mentioned in the swap deal between Atletico and Barcelona, which would include the return of Antoine Griezmann to Madrid, and then as Liverpool's wish, but only if the Reds are left without one of the important midfielders for the team.
There is no doubt that he is a great football player. It will be interesting to see where he will continue his career and whether the Spanish champion will be able to resist the rich offers. Allegedly, the thinking about selling Saul is conditioned by his high salary, which is around 12,000,000 euros a year.
United needs a player of this caliber, who could cover the defense but on the other hand, participate in the team's transition forward and help his teammates. Niguez has been linked with United before, but no concrete things have happened.
With his departure, Atletico is aware that they would lose a lot, but for now there is not so much reliable information that this transfer will take place.
