Romano has now given an update on the situation and told the United stand, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News, that the Red Devils have contacted Sauls agents and that they see the 26-year-old’s signing as a great opportunity …
“Manchester United is one of the clubs that Saul Niguez’s agent has been in contact with. They have an interest in the player and consider him ‘one of the greatest opportunities out there,’ ”said Romano.
“€ 40-45m (£ 34m – £ 38m) will close a deal, no bid yet.”
