Man Utd revive Saul Niguez transfer interest with club looking to land Atletico Madrid star after previous failed bid
MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly revived their interest in Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez.
The 26-year-old Spanish midfielder has been a long-term target for the Red Devils.
Now Todo Fichajes claims they have made him their top target to replace Paul Pogba.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are ready to pay up to £63million to bring him to Old Trafford.
However, Niguez’s release clause fee is worth £135m, and they may end up having to pay closer to that figure to get his signature.
Speculation over Pogba’s future has mounted again over recent weeks with Juventus keen to take him back to Italy.
His agent Mino Raiola revealed last week that the France international, 27, wants to leave for pastures new.
Despite Raiola’s outburst and Pogba’s total silence on the subject, the midfielder was then given a bizarre start in the 0-0 draw with Manchester City on Saturday.
But with just 18 months remaining on his current contract, Pogba’s second spell at the Theatre of Dreams looks to be coming to a certain end.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer wants to strengthen his squad in four positions.
The report says United are in the market for a winger, a centre-back, a right-back and a defensive midfielder.
And that Solskjaer and Woodward will identify their exact targets for each position by the end of the year.
And they could even be tempted to move for them should they become available next month.
