Our resident Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern have been alerted to a report from Cadena Cope radio station in Spain (via the Peoples Person) – with the media outlet suggesting that the Red Devils are readying a €20m bid to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.
The 21-year-old is an incredibly promising midfielder at the La Liga side, and it seems that Louis van Gaal is keen on luring the 21-year-old to Old Trafford – and our landlord feels this could be an incredibly astute bit of business!
Our landlord has been monitoring the Elche-born midfielder lots over the past few years, and feels the ex-Real Madrid player has all the credentials to become a top, top performer for any European club.
Niguez has made 35 appearances for the Atletico first-team since arriving from Real Madrid in 2008, and he did enjoy a fruitful loan spell at Rayo Vallecano in the 2014/14 season.
The Red Devils fans enjoying a pint here in the Tavern don’t really know what to make of this news, as most of them haven’t heard of the fella! However, they are all putting their faith in the knowledge of our landlord.
