Saul set to join new club

Atletico Madrid midfielder, Saul Niguez is set to announce his 'new club' in the next three days.


The 25-year-old player has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the past couple of months.



However, the Spain international said in a Twitter post that he will announce his new club in the next three days.


"New club. I'll announce it in three days…" posted the 25-year-old player on Sunday.



Saul made 37 appearances for the Spanish club this season and he netted four goals, one of which was a crucial goal against Liverpool in the first leg of the Champions League.


This is not the first time an Atletico player to create such a spectacle around his departure from the club and the fans are used to deal with it.



Just two years ago, the World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann released a documentary in which he deliberated whether he should stay at the club or leave.


Manchester United are still being linked with Saul's move, but we are not exactly sure that he will have any role in the team as they have strengthen their midfield area.


In the January transfer window, the Red Devils signed Bruno Fernandes and that turned out to be a great addition to the squad as the Portuguese scored 2 goals and assisted 3 in just five Premier League games.


However, the only uncertainty in the club remains Paul Pogba, whose future is yet to be decided. The Frenchman is said to leave Old Trafford this summer and if that happens Saul will be a great replacement.
