Barcelona have first option on Saul

Catalan daily newspaper Sport has learned that Barcelona have the right of first refusal on Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.

The 21-year-old has become a key member of Diego Simeone’s side this season and he just scored a wonder goal against Bayern to get his side closer to the Champions League final.

And as top European clubs start casting admiring glances his way, it has now been revealed that Barcelona have the upper hand.

Namely, the Catalans secured a first option on both Saul Niguez and Javier Manquillo back in 2013 as part of the deal taking David Villa to Vicente Calderon.

This basically means that Barcelona will be asked to match any offer accepted by Atletico for Saul, and there is a good chance the attacking midfielder will eventually end up at Camp Nou.

The talented footballer has a deal until June 2020 at Vicente Calderon, with a €60 million release clause inserted in his contract.
