Saúl Ñíguez is one of the most wanted men in the transfer market. The Alicante footballer has decided that, after having lost the starting rank and not having all the minutes he would have liked, he wants to leave Atlético de Madrid. The colchoneros have granted him the opportunity to go out, as long as a good offer arrives, of course. Up to now, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Barcelona and, lastly, Manchester United have sounded, club that was already interested in him in the summer of 2019. The footballer could fit in all, but, without a doubt, the best option to develop his virtues is the Red Devil.
Manchester United, by style, is the team in which Saúl Ñíguez will adapt best. The midfielder is a box to box, with defensive sacrifice, hitting from outside the area, reaching the finishing zone and the ability to cover spaces and change position; a very physical footballer, who uses his state of form to overcome his potential rivals. Features that marry perfectly with the Solskjaer’s demands on his players and, above all, to its double pivot.
Saúl will not take long to adapt to English football and his Manchester United teammates. The Red Devils are a club that It demands a lot physically, on the road, round-trip football and midfielders with a lot of importance both in defensive and offensive tasks. The midfielder will be like a fish in water when McTominay gives him the ball to start the transition or when players like Martial, Greenwood or Rashford cross the area looking for their header.
The Old Trafford team values him more than anyone else. Two years pursuing this occasion and the need to sign a player of his characteristics for the double pivot. This does not happen in the rest of suitors. His style does not match Barcelona, in Liverpool it would be a patch and in Bayern Munich he would arrive as a substitute for Leon Goretzka. Saúl will complete his best performance in the theater of dreams.
