Saúl Ñíguez moves to Chelsea FC. What seemed unlikely is now a reality and the Spaniard will now play in the Premier League.
The 26-year-old hit the transfer roller coaster, but eventually made it to the finish line safe and sound. Chelsea did not give up even when it seemed that the collapse of the entire deal was doomed in principle, and it proved very successful. Saúl íguez will achieve his goal and try his hand at the foreign league.
For several hours now, the footballer has been waiting for the clubs to finally come to an agreement. Ultimately, he moves to Stamford Bridge on loan, with the European champions paying the club five million euros. In addition, Atlético Madrid has agreed to conclude a contract worth 40 million euros. It will come into effect in June 2022.
This means that if the Blues like working with a Spaniard, they will be able to sign him permanently, without fear of competition. However, if they wish to negotiate better conditions, they should take care that the talks do not continue until July, when the player will not be booked for them.
According to media reports, the whole deal was supposed to collapse on Monday. Los Colchoneros haven’t been too eager to let the midfielder go all summer, which certainly made negotiations not easy. In the latest transfer window, the Londoners haven’t given up and, since the morning of the transfer deadline, have pressed for a deal.
Sale joined Rojiblancos in 2008 from Real Madrid. Step by step, he made his way through the club ranks, making his way first to the reserve and then to the first team he has played with so far, with a short gap in the ring at Rayo Vallecano. He made himself known for his midfield versatility, which often prevented him from playing in his preferred position in midfield.
