No progress on Saul Niguez's potential swap deal with Griezmann

Tue 20 July 2021 | 7:33

The potential transfer of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez to Barcelona has allegedly stagnated in recent days.

In an exchange deal to lure Antoine Griezmann back to Madrid, Niguez has been widely connected with a transfer to the Camp Nou before the 2021/22

La Liga


With Niguez sliding down the hierarchy in recent months and Griezmann maintaining to be a beloved figure for the Argentine coach,

Diego Simeone

is said to be interested in the trade. 

According to sources from

Diario AS

, however, little progress has been achieved in negotiations, with the two clubs remaining far apart on the specifics of a deal.

Barcelona's lack of interest might open the door to a move to England, with Liverpool and Manchester United keeping an eye on the Spanish international. 

Simeone is willing to sell him to a

Premier League

team for a reasonable amount since he plans to acquire a new forward this summer.
