Atletico Madrid observe Man City Yangel Herrera as Saul replacement

Sun 25 July 2021 | 22:39

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone will be on the hunt for a new midfielder in the transfer market to replace Saul Niguez if the player leaves the club this month.

The Spain international has been linked with a move away from the club after a decade, with

Barcelona

,

Manchester United

and

Liverpool

said to be interested in his services.

Saul

has developed a reputation as one of the best box-to-box midfielders in the world in recent years but struggled for regular game time during the 2020-21 campaign.

Initially, it looked as he may be involved in a swap deal with Barcelona's

Antoine Griezmann

, but that now appears to have fallen through, meaning that he is up for grabs on the market again.

Simeone

will have to find a reliable replacement if Saul leaves the club.

According to reports from

Mundo Deportivo

,

Manchester City

’s

Yangel Herrera

is an option for Rojiblancos.

Manchester City are looking to raise funds to sign

Harry Kane

and

Jack Grealish

. And the Venezuelan international, who spent the last two years on loan at Granada, is one of those with the most options to leave the defending Premier League champions.

Atletico could sign the midfielder for a fee in the region of €23m, but they may face competition from clubs in England for the 23-year-old.
