The prodigious and polyvalent midfield player of the Athletic of Madrid Saúl Ñíguez goes back to the orbit of the FC Barcelona like alternative to Marco Verratti. The Madrilenian, that could be culé the past course, did not finish it being by an important question
The FC Barcelona no fichó to Saúl Ñíguez the past summer mainly by the high price of the footballer. The newspaper "MD" published does just a year that, when seeming, the Barça asked to the Athletic of Madrid by the right of score that has on the young promise rojiblanca, whose clause of rescission was in this moment of 45 million euros.
From the entity colchonera, however, priced to the footballer in 80 million euros, due to the fact that that would be the new clause that will have Saúl of here to few months, since the Athletic of Madrid had foreseen to improve him the agreement. It did it, it expanded his years of links to the club and went up him the clause, what cancelled any option of the Barça in the signing, since the player agreed in continuing dress of rojiblanco.
True is that the Catalan entity still saves a preferential option of his signing after the sale of David Villa to the colchoneros does three seasons. The Asturian forward recaló in previous Madrid payment of 2,1 million euros by part of the Athletic as well as the preferential rights by the then young perlas of the quarry, Saúl Ñíguez and Javier Manquillo. The side finds at present yielded in the Olympique of Marseilles and the midfield player likes a lot to the entity blaugrana.
The Athletic does not want to sell to Saúl
Nevertheless, by the head of the Athletic still does not happen the sell to one of his best players this season, although there are a lot of teams of the Premier League merodeando and could be tempted to pay his clause of rescission. His current agreement, to fault that it carry out the official renewal, finish next June of 2020.
Regarding the preferential option of purchase that has the Barcelona on Saúl, would consist in that the Barça could equalise any offer that launch by the Spanish player, and that it was susceptible to be accepted by the Athletic, for fichar to the young footballer. Since the main aim of the Barça this course for the half is Marco Verratti, in case that the Italian do not arrive could go back to contemplate the option of the canterano rojiblanco.
Desparpajo, dowries of leadership, quality in the pass and control and, especially, offensive danger with his big shot, those are the qualities of Saúl that the Barça carries time controlling. Those that has carried him to annotate 22 so many in the last three seasons with the Athletic of Madrid.
