Saúl Ñíguez expected to stay with Atlético Madrid

Despite Chelsea’s interest in signing Saúl Ñíguez on loan, negotiations have not progressed and the player looks set to stay with Atlético Madrid, according to Rubén Uría.

Thomas Tuchel wanted Saúl, the player’s entourage pushed and Chelsea proposed a loan deal, however, the negotiations did not take off and despite the interest of the Blues, in the last few hours the operation has fallen through, according to reliable sources in contact with Goal.

Atlético Madrid listened to all parties but always made it clear that, if the 26-year-old wanted to leave the club, it would be for a fee that would satisfy Atlético’s economic interests and that has not happened.
