Manchester United are eager to land a talented midfielder who can handle plenty of reps and contribute scoring chances too. With the transfer window now underway the Red Devils are eyeing Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez as a target for their January shopping list.
According to the Metro, Man United are ready to offer the La Liga giants £15 million for the 21-year-old Spanish midfielder. Niguez has made 21 club appearances this season, scoring a handful of goals along the way. In the Champions League, he has made six appearances – with four starts – recording two goals and an assist.
The source, Spanish journalist Antonio Ruiz, reported that the Red Devils are hoping to land Niguez in either the January or summer transfer window.
Last season Niguez made 24 appearances for Atletico Madrid, scoring four goals and making two assists.
Man United have not received the expected contributions from their expensive summer midfield acquisitions in weeks, scoring just a few goals since December.
