Manchester United has allegedly moved closer to securing the signing of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.
A deal taking Saul to Old Trafford is ‘practically done’ according to Todo Fichajes, with confirmation expected at the end of the campaign.
United had recently been linked to a 25-year-old approach, despite suggestions that they may prioritize attack-minded players later in 2020.
Being aware that due to the coronavirus pandemic, they need to balance the books, the report adds that Atletico is prepared to accept a £70 m offer.
Despite the player having a long-term contract, which has a £132 m release clause, Atletico has been suggested to cash in on the Spaniard during the next transfer window for the above reasons.
Saul has made 34 starting places this season in La Liga and the Champions League.
