Earlier, the Dailystar claims that Chelsea are exploiting the possibility of bringing Athletic Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez to Stamford Bridge on loan as The Telegraph wrote of the player’s interest in going to England.

Although, The Telegraph claims that the Blues will have to sell some fringe players for the deal to happen.
Saul has also been on the radar of Chelsea Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool FC.
The transfer expert, on his official Twitter page wrote:
“Saúl is set to leave Atléti.
Chelsea opened talks for Saúl days ago. There’s official bid now on the table – loan with buy option. 🔵 #CFC
Also Manchester United have asked for Saúl again in the last 24 hours, he’s in the list with Camavinga. 🔴 #MUFC
He’s ready for PL move.”
It promises to be an interesting end to this transfer window as both clubs would trade tackles for Saul’s signature. The winner will of course have a very formidable team to have a real hope at the Premier League crown as the player is energetic, hard working, good ball passer and a team-player.
