Manchester United target Saul Niguez insists Atletico Madrid remains his home for the time being but refused to completely rule out leaving the club in the future.
The transfer window is still a few weeks away and there is still alot of football to be played before players can be signed, but that has not stopped speculation in the media linking the Red Devils with a number of possible signings.
And one man that has been constantly linked with a move to Old Trafford, is that of Niguez, who is regarded as one of the finest midfielders in Europe right now and is valued at over £120 million.
Reports from across Europe have now claimed Manchester United are close to completing the deal despite interest from Chelsea and Arsenal, with reports on the SUN recently claiming that he will make the move to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at the end of the season.
However, the 25-year-old Spain international has revealed he has not been in contact with any club about a possible summer move, and is happy at the club for the time being.
“I see things on Instagram or in newspapers which you publish, but I haven’t heard anything from any club,” he told Radio Marca.
“I have a long-term contract, which I signed because I want to stay here.
“I don’t have any problem staying here because my family are here, it’s my home. People say, ‘come out and deny it’, but then if you deny it and something happens, you look bad.
“I just stick to playing football and what has to happen will happen. I’m just focused on achieving Atletico’s target, which is to be in the top four, and then try to get the most desired target of the season.”
Manchester United landing Niguez would have been a dream signing for many United fans, but this will surely shut down any speculation that he is heading to Old Trafford this summer.
So unless something spectacular happens in the next few months, Manchester United fans will not be seeing the arrival of Niguez.
