Manchester United are eyeing Atletico Madrid attacker Saul Niguez.

The Sun says United have been encouraged from the feedback they’ve received from Saul’s camp in recent weeks.

The 22-year-old’s performances have caught United boss Jose Mourinho’s eye as he looks to bolster his United squad.

The Red Devils’ lack of attacking midfield depth has been exposed in the wake of Paul Pogba’s hamstring injury problems.

Atletico had a whopping £134m buyout clause written into the contract Saul signed this summer.

And United would have to cough up that fee unless they can thrash out a cut-price deal with Atletico.

For his part, Saul would be open to joining United if an agreement was in place between the clubs.
