Manchester United have reportedly moved closer to securing the signature of Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez.
In spite of the player having a long-term contract, which possesses an exit clause of £132m, it has been suggested that Los Rojiblancos will cash in on the Spaniard during the next transfer window.
United have recently been mentioned with an approach for the 25-year-old, despite talks that they may prioritise attack-minded stars later in 2020.
According to Todo Fichajes, a deal taking Niguez to Old Trafford is ‘practically done’, with confirmation expected at the end of the season.
Aware that they need to balance the books because of the coronavirus pandemic, the report adds that Atletico are ready to accept an offer of £70m.
The versatile Spain international has made 34 starts in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League this season.
Meantime, Manchester United could allegedly face competition from Bayern Munich when it comes to the signature of Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho.
The Englishman continues to be linked with a potential move to Old Trafford despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which is expected to have a big impact on summer deals.
The England international has been in stunning form for BVB during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 17 times and grabbing 19 assists in all competitions.
United are widely considered as the favourites for the former Manchester City youngster, but according to ESPN, Die Roten could battle the 20-time English champions for his signature.
The report states that the Bundesliga giants ‘made enquiries’ about Jadon before the coronavirus outbreak and have identified the winger as an alternative to Manchester City’s Leroy Sane.
