Barcelona lining up bid for Saul Niguez

Barcelona have reportedly identified Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez as a potential summer signing.

The Spain international has made 268 appearances Atleti since making his debut in 2012, including 18 in all competitions during the ongoing campaign.

Manchester United were linked with the 25-year-old midfielder during the summer, though, and according to reports in Spain, Barcelona are now weighing up a swoop ahead of the next season.

The playmaker has operated across the midfield during his time with Los Che, while he has also previously turned out as a centre-back.

Niguez’s contract at the Wanda Metropolitano runs until the summer of 2026.
