With Jose Mourinho’s Old Trafford rebuilding plan finally gathering pace and momentum, and Manchester United showing massive signs of improvement, them being linked with star players from across all the big leagues is not anymore a surprise.
According to the Times, United have emerged as a club chasing Atletico Madrid and its star men, with Saul Niguez being the latest on the list.
The Atletico midfielder is known for his aggressive and direct game play approach which matches the style of Mourinho’s preferred midfielders, and his memorable solo goal against Bayern Munich in the Champions League semifinal was a great glimpse of the capabilities and skills he possesses in his locker.

Mourinho is wasting no time in turning United into the force everybody once feared, and the inclusion of players like Saul is a giant and quick leap towards that aim.
Saul, aged 22, is perfectly mobile and gives an added height advantage ideal for a team set up by Mourinho.
Griezmann is also a prime target for Mourinho, and Atletico could gain as much as £145m from the sale of their two star men to Old Trafford.
With 7 wins in a row in all competitions, blockbuster big name players and one of the most popular managers in world football, United are definitely heading the news among the papers, and no big teams and their players are out of their reach.
Will Saul be a Red Devil before the window closes? – That’s a question fans eagerly want an answer to.
