Man United are on the verge of sealing a sensational £70m transfer swoop for Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez.
Niguez has widely been linked with a switch to United for months now, and it appears the Red Devils are close to landing their target man.
According to Express UK citing sources in Spain, talks between United and Atletico over the transfer of Niguez are practically closed.
And the agreement in effect to that will reportedly be made official by the end of the current suspended campaign when the window reopens.
The Spaniard had a buyout clause of £142m but Atletico are willing to accept a lower fee following the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic which has seen the player’s value drop significantly.
Meanwhile, news on the playmaker’s imminent arrival to Old Trafford is certain to fuel speculation over the future of Paul Pogba.
Pogba’s future at the Red Devils remain unclear, with Real Madrid and Juventus all understood to be keen to sign him.
It was previously reported the Frenchman was open to staying at United for another year, but with his contract winding down, the club could be tempted to sell him.
