Chelsea have reportedly usurped Manchester United in pursuit of Saul Niguez, who appears set to leave Atletico Madrid this summer.

According to a report by Daily Telegraph, Chelsea have stepped up their efforts to sign Saul Niguez before the summer transfer window slams shut. The Blues have held talks with Atletico Madrid over a potential loan deal with an option to buy the Spanish midfielder, who is also a target for Manchester United.

Saul Niguez is coming off a forgettable 2020/21 campaign, which resulted in his stock falling a fair bit, both at club level and international level. However, his reputation among prospective suitors has not been hit all that much, with a host of big-name clubs being hot on his trails at one point or another this summer.

To date, Saul has featured 339 times for Atletico Madrid, chipping in with 43 goals and 20 assists along the way. However, his time at the Wanda Metropolitano appears to be reaching its end, with recent reports suggesting that the 26-year-old wishes to call it quits at the Spanish club. And as things stand, Chelsea and Manchester United are keen on signing him. Chelsea were first linked with Saul a couple of months ago before they turned their attention towards completing the signing of priority target Romelu Lukaku. With Lukaku now onboard at Stamford Bridge and Jules Kounde edging closer to making the switch from Sevilla, Chelsea have now switched their focus back to Saul.
