He was never that good.Feels like only a year or two ago Saul Niguez was the must have midfield player from Atletico. Is he not that good?
Edit: Dodgy source but maybe still some interest?
The mismanagement at this club is really something else. We need to have a system in place that stops this foolishness from happening.This is getting ridiculous now, he only moved last summer so why didnt we go for him when he was at Villarreal?
sell pogba - buy saulSaul has a contract until 2026. Which was a nine year contract when he signed which would suggest to me that he intends on staying there for a long time. Either that or Atletico are trying to keep his value sky high. At the moment he has £130m release clause.
We've walked away from a small number of deals when we felt they were too expensive, and other clubs signed those players. But clearly there's a hell of a lot more examples where we did not walk away.So at what point do City fans stop the cringeworthy claim that they don’t pay what other clubs can? More players In the top 50 most expensive signings ever than any club, and at least 1 to be added in Rodri this summer.
The one consolation you can take is this probably means another year or two that Liverpool won't win the league.Rodri and Cancelo they are getting while we are looking at Longstaff and Rice?
feck me what happened to this football club?
Yeah, he is excellent. Will fit in at City like Bernardo is now. he is the perfect Pep DM. His problem was playing for Simeone, who isnt getting the best out of him with their style, but Pep will elevate him in his system.Is he really that good? Atletico didn't really had an impressive season even though it was good on paper (2nd place in La Liga).
