Manchester United are interested in signing highly-rated Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez who has a release clause of £125m in his current contract with the Rojiblancos.
According to The Telegraph, Manchester United can sign Spanish international Saul Niguez for £85m which is £40m lesser than the release clause in his Atletico Madrid contract.
Atletico Madrid defeated Osasuna 2-0 at home at the weekend with Saul Niguez getting the clinching goal for Diego Simeone’s side.
The goal against Osasuna took his tally to three goals in 19 appearances for the season.

Manchester United have made the signing of a quality midfielder top priority ahead of the winter transfer market in the New Year and Saul Niguez is said to be one of the targets on their list.
The Red Devils let midfielders Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini leave the club earlier this year, but they have been unable to replace them since then.
Marouane Fellaini is a Belgian international star who was at Manchester United until the January transfer window this year when he joined Chinese Super League outfit Beijing Gouan in a £10m deal.
For Spanish international midfielder Ander Herrera, he joined French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) on a free transfer this summer.
