Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez this summer, but it now seems the player won’t be leaving the Spanish capital this year.
More recently, Chelsea have been tipped to prise the Spaniard from Atletico, with Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claiming both Liverpool and the Blues were primed to pounce on the ashes of a failed move from Barcelona.
If this is true, the only way this deal can happen is if both Griezmann and Saul decide to take a paycut (which could be likely).

CaughtOffisde report Chelsea’s potential move for Saul has broken down and the player will now remain at Atletico beyond tonight’s deadline, following a change in stance on the Spaniards’ side, echoed by Romano.
