Reports have claimed that Saul Niguez is looking to leave Atletico Madrid in the transfer window.
Saul won his first La Liga title with Atletico this season, but his involvement significantly decreased compared to past seasons. In the previous three campaigns, he made at least 30 league starts as Atletico finished second in both 2018 and 2019 and third in 2020.
However, in 2020/21, he made just 22 starts as Simeone led the club to its first Spanish title win in seven years, and His drop down the pecking order has reportedly resulted in him desiring a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano in the upcoming transfer window.
And According to Monday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo, Saul is ‘determined’ to part ways with Atletico this summer, with Chelsea now ready to try and make a transfer move.
Saul has a £129million (€150m) release clause in his Atletico contract, but with the deal expiring in 2026, the club would accept an offer worth around £69m (€80m), the reports claims
Niguez is a very special player that would be a world class signing for Chelsea if they were to step up their chase in the transfer window to try and get some sort of transfer deal done.
Not many players want to leave Madrid, so Chelsea would have to offer something special to get a deal done, but he would be worth the money guys
But considering they are a side that can offer him top level football and more chances to win trophies, it would be a very good option for him to make a possible move to the Bridge
