Sensational developments continue to unfold at Old Trafford as the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern eagerly await the arrival of Jose Mourinho. 

Despite the deal being far from official, a multitude of reports claim the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Karim Benzema could soon join the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ at the Theatre of Dreams.

Now, according to the Daily Mail, another huge name has been linked with doing much the same.

Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez is understood to be a stunning £54m target for the club after he emerged as one one the most talented prospects on the continent.

Under the stewardship of Diego Simeone, the 21-year old has been a revelation in the Spanish capital and is able to operate all over the park at an extremely high level.

Though he recently agreed a new deal, he is believed to have a £54m release clause inserted into his deal, meaning Los Rojiblancos would be powerless to prevent his exit should it be triggered.

The signing of the Spanish international would send shockwaves around world football and mark a truly marquee signing for Ed Woodward and company.

Would signing Saul be a game changer for Man United?
