Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly set to battle it out with Liverpool for the signature of Atletico Madrid’s midfielder, Saul Niguez.
Saul Niguez has established himself as an important player for Atletico Madrid and the Spaniard played an important role in their achievements last season.
This performance has caught the attention of top clubs in Europe who are willing to add him to their squad.
Barcelona were on top of this list before but the Catalonia club are currently going through financial crisis in their club.
With Liverpool yet to replace Georginio Wijnaldum, Saul has been tipped as a perfect replacement for the Holland international.
According to the Guardian, Atletico Madrid are prepared to let the midfielder leave on an initial season-long loan.
Chelsea are also interested and The Blues will step up their interest if Thomas Tuchel decides that his team needs more depth in the centre of midfield.
Manchester United are linked with the 26-year-old Spaniard as Paul Pogba is yet to renew his contract that will end in 11 months time.
