According to reliable Spanish source Marca, Chelsea have ‘contacted’ Atletico Madrid for Saul Niguez.
The midfielder has been linked with the Blues previously this window and the interest has been renewed by Chelsea as Saul’s move to Barcelona looks unlikely at the moment.
Moreover, the reason for this renewed interest has also been revealed – reportedly, Thomas Tuchel is leading the charge to bring Saul to London.
The Champions League-winning manager likes the midfielder and wants to beat out Liverpool and Manchester United to the signing.
Meanwhile, FC Barcelona are still interested in the player too and it remains to be seen where he lands up.
As per the same publication, a bid worth £43M should be enough to convince Atletico to let go of their man this summer.
