Madrid boss Simeone announces world class Manchester United target could leave Atletico

Diego Simeone has admitted that Manchester United target Saul Niguez could leave Atletico Madrid this summer

The midfielder has been an integral part of Diego Simeone’s team in recent years, making over 300 appearances in all competitions, but having fallen out of favour at the club last season, there has been alot of speculation about his future

United are just one of a number of clubs that are reportedly interested in trying to secure a transfer deal for Niguez over the next few weeks, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to add another creative, top-level player to his squad

And now they have been handed as boost after Simeone confirmed that Saul is unsatisfied with his current role in the team, and says he won’t stand in his way if the club receive a suitable offer from a potential suitor in the coming weeks.

The Atletico boss told AS of the midfielder’s situation: “Last season he (Saul) spoke with the club, with us about his needs and what he spoke about was the option of having a position on the pitch where he feels more important.

“And I consider that Saul became Saul by playing everywhere, but he or many of those around him see it as something negative.

“He is very important for Atletico because he can play as a full-back, right-wing, midfielder. He gives us a lot of options to be able to count on him. He is a player who, in that version and playing how the coach needs him to, performs very well.”

Simeone added on the possibility of Saul moving onto pastures new: “We cannot put aside what is rumoured 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 continue being friends, as always. Either to Barcelona or elsewhere.”
