Saul Niguez : Chelsea among clubs interested in Atletico Madrid midfielder

Saul Niguez, a member of Diego Simeone’s title-winning team last season, will be permitted to depart Atletico this summer.

He has 19 caps for Spain but was not selected for Euros this summer.

United, along with Rennes’ Eduardo Camavinga, have been monitoring the midfielder.

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel was pleased with his team on Sunday. After loaning Billy Gilmour to Norwich City, he may seek to recruit another midfielder.

Tuchel already has Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, and N’Golo Kante in midfield.

Chelsea are in discussions with Antonio Rudiger’s agents about a new deal.

A year into his current contract, the Germany international assured Tuchel he is completely committed to the Premier League club.

But Rudiger wants to consider all possibilities before taking the next step in his career.

Last October, Chelsea were considering extending his contract to enable him to go on loan to Tottenham, PSG, and AC Milan.

Rudiger decided to remain and battle for his position, and he has been Tuchel’s first choice since taking over from Frank Lampard.

Real Madrid and PSG are both interested in signing him on a pre-contract in January.
