Saul Niguez has been one of the most important players for Diego Simeone during his tenure at the club. The 25-year-old is a crowd favourite in Madrid and has garnered attention from several clubs including Barcelona. This season, the playmaker has scored four goals, one of which was against Liverpool in the Champions League.
Back in April, during an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, Ferdinand named the Spaniard as one of the players Manchester United should sign in the summer. ‘I would probably go for Sancho, Koulibaly and Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid,’ said the former Red Devils and England defender.
