- Supports good football
Haven’t watched much of them this year but on reports I’ve seen Saul has supposedly been their best player this season and even who scored has him as their highest rated player.Koke is a great player but yes, he is Atletico to the core. He is going nowhere. Saul did not grow up an Atletico fan whereas Koke's entire family are Colchoneros. With those prices for Saul though he is also unattainable and he has a lengthy contract. Thomas Partey has been better than both over the last 12 months and though he has great loyalty he may fancy a move more and has a relatively paltry release clause. He'd also be far more use to us because he specializes in the CDM role.
I’d rather have Saul because generally I think he is a far better footballer and I’m not sure we really need someone like Partey. Either or I’m not really fussed and would happily take either but I think we will probably look elsewhere for a more defensively inclined midfielder.
