Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez has confirmed that English Premier League club Man United were interested in his services and that flattered him.

Unfortunately, the interest in his service has been laid to rest as the Red Devils have already secured the signature of Donny van de Beek from Ajax with a fee of £40 million.

Apparently, he would have given his nod to the Red Devils, despite not admitting that but Saul Niguez confessed to being flattered that a club like Man United asked about his availability.

The feeling for Saul Niguez became bigger when he heard former players like Rio Ferdinand speak of him in public as a good player. he admitted it was a positive one for him and his work with the Spanish La Liga outfit.

Of course, Saul Niguez is set to stay with Atletico Madrid for another season with the coming of the Dutch midfielder who is highly rated and has bee pictured in training.

With the capture of Donny van de Beek, the Red Devils are now prioritizing the signature of England international winger Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, with the latest claims that personal terms have been agreed upon while agent fees have also been successfully negotiated
