Manchester United are on cloud nine right now, given their gallant performances both in the Premier League as well as the Champions League, which has given them a world of confidence for their forthcoming matches this season. The Red Devils are willing to make this season a very successful one in terms of results and get their hands on some significant silverware to add to their trophy cabinet.

However, the club gaffer Jose Mourinho wants his team devoid of any complacency and is looking to get a few more players to add to his side for the rest of the season, looking forward to filling in for the players who might depart from the side after this season. Currently, he is eyeing the Spanish midfielder Saul Niguez, who might be a good replacement for the England international Michael Carrick set to call it quits next year.

The 22-year-old has been one of the best players in the midfield for his present club Atletico Madrid for the last few seasons, showing substantial development in his style of play.

His composure and dedication to keep the ball for a significant amount of time and pass it into the attacking third to set up his teammates from time to time has got rave reviews from a number of experts from all over Europe and has attracted the eyes of a number of big-name clubs including that of the Red Devils.

Niguez is known for his strong appearances in the midfield, vying with the opposition to keep the lion’s share of the ball possession to himself. However, he can also get into the attacking third and score goals for his side to give them an advantage over the rivals.

He has scored nine goals in each of the two previous seasons for Los Rojiblancos, establishing his importance as one of the prime weapons in the first team.

Manchester United have invested a substantial amount of money in the summer transfer window, bringing in an array of players to revamp the side for the new season, including the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof, and Nemanja Matic.

However, they might look to break the bank in the winter transfer window once again in order to bring in more players, making another good addition to the team in the form of the Spanish ace Saul Niguez, which might bring them rich dividends in the forthcoming days of the season.
