SAUL NIGUEZ is available for transfer this summer with Atletico Madrid reportedly giving his representatives the green light to pursue a move.
The midfielder, 26, hopes to have his future sorted out over the next week, with Premier League clubs circulating.
Saul and his representatives will travel to the UK on Sunday in an attempt to negotiate a move, report The Mirror .
Manchester United are believed to be the favourites to land Saul, with Liverpool also said to be interested .
And with Paul Pogba’s future up in the air Ed Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could view the Spaniard as the ideal replacement.
Liverpool are also in need of a midfielder after Gini Wijnaldum departed for Paris St Germain in June .
Saul’s representatives will look to negotiate with both clubs in order to tie up a deal quickly.
Atletico will reportedly listen to offers between £35-£45million for Saul, despite having five years left to run on his contract.

It is some way short of his release clause of £120m, but Atletico are believed to be set on selling two big-name players this summer.
Saul is also said to be determined to make a move after seeing his game time reduced under Diego Simeone last term.
Meanwhile, Atletico team-mate Kieran Trippier could also move to Old Trafford this season, but United may need to sell first to make that switch happen .
