Manchester United have opened talks to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, according to the Mirror.

In fact, the report claims that the Red Devils are hoping to sign the 21-year-old in this transfer window.

Saul, who has an £18million release clause in his contract, has played an important role under the guidance of Diego Simeone recently, so it won't be easy for the Manchester United hierarchy to land him.

The dynamic midfielder is comfortable on the ball, has a strong left foot and occupies fine aerial presence; he would certainly offer United a great deal from the middle of the park.

Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger may have only joined the Old Trafford outfit in the summer, but they've flattered to deceive so far. 

Arsenal are interested 

But United have challengers for Saul. The same report claims that their Premier League rivals are also interested in the player, as Arsene Wenger goes in search of reinforcements in the centre of midfield. 

Arsenal, of course, have had a number of injury problems throughout the course of the campaign with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta all failing to maintain their fitness. 

As it stands, though, Atletico appear to be extremely reluctant to offload the Spaniard after watching a number of their players depart for the Premier League in the last couple of years.
