Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are delighted by their return to form, which has seen them draw level on-points with fourth-placed rivals Manchester City, and they’ve certainly be a loud bunch in the smoking area today.
As well as discussions on their rise to success once again, fans are discussing some exciting reports that have surfaced via The Daily Mirror, who state Manchester United are ready to push through a deal for Saul Niguez.
The highly-rated 21-year-old Spaniard has been embroiled in a contract saga with Atletico Madrid and doesn’t seem likely to pen a new deal with Diego Simeone’s side, as he rejected a new contract earlier this year.
United have been scouting Saul for the past 12 months and have been boosted by the news of the contract stand-off, which has given them hope of securing a deal should they match the youngster’s £25m release clause.
Our landlord is confident a deal can be reached with Atletico and believes Saul would be the perfect addition to United’s midfield ranks, providing an immediate boost as well as huge potential for the future.
