Man Utd reportedly closing in on the signing of two La Liga stars.
Manchester United are reportedly closing in on the capture of two Spanish La Liga players as they continue to rebuild their squad ahead of the new season.
The Red Devils are working to build a squad worthy of wining major silverwares next season.
The Stamford Bridge are looking to add a midfielder and a right-back, with a report from El Gol Digital suggesting that they are in contention to secure a sensational double deal for La Liga duo Saul Niguez and Kieran Trippier.
Both the Spanish midfielder and the England defender are available in the market, with Trippier already attracting admiration from Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Englishman has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for a long time and have been reportedly seen in an area close to Old Trafford where he was said to be searching for an apartment.
The former Tottenham star’s transfer fee has been placed at €30 million by Atletico Madrid and Man Utd are reportedly willing to match it.
The addition of Trippier will offer some much-needed competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka who has been drawing much criticism because of his poor involvement in the final third of the pitch.
As for the Spanish star Saul Niguez, the Atletico Madrid midfielder was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, but the Reds unwillingness to match Atletico Madrid’s asking price for him as offered Manchester United the opportunity to go all out for his acquisition and it is looking like they would be the one to get his signature.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are reportedly willing to fork out €50 million for Saul, which is pretty much what Atletico Madrid are demanding for the 26-year-old.
However, Manchester United’s willingness to sign Saul does raise questions over the future of their French midfielder Paul Pogba, who has be attracting a lot of interest from French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain.
In fact, Pogba’s departure could be vital for Manchester United remaining transfer businesses, as his sale could help raise funds for the signing of their remaining targets.
