According to Metro, Atletico Madrid are prepared to lower their asking price for midfielder Saul Niguez.

The 25 year old midfielder has a release clause of £125 million but Atletico Madrid are reportedly willing to accept a bid of £85 million for the Spain international in January.

Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing the 25 year old midfielder, who broke into the Atletico first team in 2010 and is about to make his 250th appearance for the Spanish club.

Atletico Madrid reportedly want to sell Saul Niguez to raise funds for a summer move for a striker to replace Antoine Griezmann, who left for Barcelona during the summer. Atletico Madrid will prefer to sell Thomas Lemar but they are yet to receive a suitable offer for the Frenchman.

  2. I think we should focus on the midfielder we have they are enough,we still have loftus who is yet to recover fully .I think we just need to build up our teams

  3. I think our midfield has no problem as the defense and little strike

  4. We need some body strong in defense than a midfielder

    We should forget bringing saul, with loftus cheek and the red midfielders can do great work

  8. We need a very strong attack like Drougba not midfielders.
