As reported by AS, Atlético Madrid are looking to offer Saúl to Juventus on a loan deal after hearing the news of Paul Pogba’s injury.
The French midfielder will be facing the next couple of months on the sidelines after injuring his meniscus in his knee.
Atlético Madrid are considering ways to reduce their wage bill and the excess amount of players they have in midfield. It is believed that Los Colchoneros will present Saúl to Juventus in the next few hours as a way for the Italian club to fill the gap left by Pogba’s injury and also offload a player who is not part of the club’s long-term plan.
Despite coming back to the club from his season-long loan at Chelsea with the desire to earn a place in the team, Atléti do not want to hold on to the Spanish midfielder.
Saúl failed to become a regular at Chelsea, having only made 10 appearances in the Premier League last season.
Atlético Madrid are also looking to strengthen their side for the upcoming season. They are very close to signing Nahuel Molina.
