Man United set to agree £150k deal with Spanish midfielder


Man United are set to sign Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez as they have reportedly agreed a £150,000 weekly wage deal with the player.

Daily Star reports that the Red Devils are already giving up on the signature of Jack Grealish as they might not be able to meet with the £80 million fee slammed on the 24-year-old and will have Saul Niguez as an option.

The future of Saul Niguez at the Spanish La Liga outfit is very uncertain which makes him a subject of speculation for a move this summer transfer window.

Man United are already in talks with him and they plan to lure him with an improved wage deal as well as giving him the opportunity to play alongside Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.

The stance of the Red Devils in the summer transfer window is still unknown as they are unable to secure their major targets, except for last minutes’ turn in the development of things.

For obvious reasons, they might not be able to sign England international winger, Jadon Sancho while Jack Grealish could also be missed as a result of the £80 million asking price.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has, therefore, urged the club to spend money in order not to be left behind by other clubs.
