Manchester United to try and sign £100 million Spaniard after making Pogba transfer decision
Fresh reports have claimed Manchester United will try and sign Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid should Paul Pogba leave the club.
Pogba has endured form and fitness problems across a second spell with the Red Devils, but his ability remains without question and he can be a match-winner on his day.
United have always maintained that they have no intention of letting the Frenchman leave the club at any stage during his time in Manchester, despite all the rumours that he wants out and wants that move to Real Madrid
United will open talks with Paul Pogba about a new £400,000-a-week contract this month, according to the Sunday Mirror, and The paper says they are willing to make the Frenchman the club’s highest-paid player to keep him at Old Trafford for another four years.
But they are also prepared to sell him midfielder this summer if he threatens to run down the final 12 months of his current deal and are reportedly ready to pay big money to sign Niguez.
Niguez is regarded as one of the finest midfielders in world football right now, and any fee that United would pay would be close to that £100 million mark as Atletico will not want to let one of their star players leave the club.
Either way, United appear keen to make sure the £89m man does not walk away for nothing – and if he does leave in the summer, any fee that they raise from his sale will go towards investing in Niguez.
