According to Sportsmail United are weighing up a move for Niguez with Paris Saint-Germain ready to make an offer for Paul Pogba. The Red Devils believe they could strike a deal for around £45million for Niguez.
Niguez had looked set to join Barca, with a possible swap deal for Antoine Griezmann discussed before wages to become an issue. Saul is under contract until 2026 and is one of Atletico’s highest earners.
If Niguez does depart for Old Trafford, Mundo Deportivo claim Atletico will enter the market for a replacement.
The Spanish outlet report that City midfielder Herrera is being considered as a possible option.
Herrera spent the 2020-2021 season on loan with LaLiga club Granada and Atletico boss Diego Simeone is said to have been impressed by the 23-year-old.
