Manchester United deal ‘agreed’ as Saul Niguez teases new club announcement

Saul Niguez has been one of atletico Madrid best midfielder and also considered as one of the best central midfielders in the world.

He came through Atlético Madrid's youth academy, he went on to appear in more than 250 competitive matches for the club.

 Recently the Manchester United target has sent fans into meltdown after a cryptic tweet suggesting he is leaving Atletico Madrid. has made him untouchable in the transfer market until now.

 Saul Niguez has €150 million (£134m) release clause in his contract making it so difficult for other clubs to touch.

 But yesterday the Spaniard tweeted ‘I have something important to tell you’ and then ‘New Club: I’ll announce it in 3 days’ in both Spanish and English. He has also changed his profile picture to the words ‘3 dias’ (3 days).

It is highly unusual for a footballer to announce his own transfer – especially when there has been little press on the subject – so it seems more likely that Saul’s ‘new club’ will refer to another sort of commercial activity, such as a new sponsor, investment or charitable organisation – the kind of publicity stunt that the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic have pulled in the past.

 On the other hand, it is not unprecedented for Atleti players to announce their next contract themselves. In 2018 Antoine Griezmann ran a video called ‘La Decision’ (the decision) which was revealed to be a contract extension amid reports that he would be joining Barcelona, which he did a year later.

 And the fact is that if Saul really is about to announce a change of football club, Manchester United is the most likely destination.

 There have been a number of reports in the last two months linking the Spaniard with a move to Old Trafford and claimed recently that a fee has been agreed and that a deal is practically concluded.
