Saúl Ñíguez will join Chelsea on loan from Atlético Madrid with a €40 million option to buy, according to Matteo Moretto.

The player’s agent Jonathan Barnett has been key in the player’s last-minute move. Saúl was pushing for a move from the Spanish champions. Thomas Tuchel is a fan of the player, who will add competition to the European champions’ midfield.

The loan fee for Atlético is believed to be worth €5 million.
