Atlético Madrid boss admits Chelsea and Manchester United could leave the club this summer
Posted On July 22, 2021
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has admitted that Saul Niguez could leave Wanda Metropolitano this summer during the transfer window.
The future of the Spain international in the Spanish capital is still in doubt, with Barcelona, Manchester United and Liverpool all admitting their eagerness to sign him.
Simeone has called the Spaniard “vital to Atletico” but has said the midfielder would leave with “a big hug” if he somehow started looking for new pastures in the current market.
I believe that Saul became Saul by playing everywhere, but he or many around him see it as something negative.
Saul is very important to Atletico because he can play as a fullback as well as a right-wing midfielder. He gives us many opportunities to count on him. He’s a player who, in that version and playing the way the coach needs him, is performing very well.
We cannot put aside what is rumored and talked about. If he has to leave, give him a big hug, wish him the best with the boys who gave us life and to remain friends, as always. Either to Barcelona or elsewhere.
Atletico and Barcelona are said to be in talks over a possible swap deal for Saul and Antoine Griezmann, but a new report has ensured the Spaniard’s representative also spoke with Liverpool and Man United.
