Barcelona and Manchester United are reported to have him on their wish list, but despite not ruling out an exit from Atletico Madrid, he seems pretty confident that his future is at the Rojiblancos.
I’m fine at Atletico. I don’t want to leave. It was hard to get the confidence of Cholo and now that I have it, it would be very difficult to start from zero at another team
Saul Niguez told reporters in Poland, where the Spain Under-21 team are about to face Germany in the final of the European championship, a competition in which the Atletico midfielder has been nothing less than impressive.
I don’t see myself outside Atletico, something very surprising would have to happen
Saul said, adding though a sentence that shows he expects Atletico to do something about his salary, so as to show him their full appreciation.
I repeat, I am happy at Atletico and I feel valued, but everyone would like to earn a bit more money to be able to help out the family
the 22-year-old said, practically calling the Madrid club to adjust his earnings, now that he has proved what an important member of the squad he is.
