The transfer window has officially shut down and it saw several deals happen in the last minute as we saw clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and the rest getting busy in the market today.
However, after the European champions snapped up Romelu Lukaku for a club record fee of £98m, the club have now signed Atletico Madrid star man, Saul Niguez on a season loan for €5m and an option to buy for €40m valid in June 2022, Chelsea confirmed it on their website.
The blues were unable to secure the signing of on of their main target, Jules Koundé after Sevilla refused the €50m tabled by Chelsea. The Spanish side insisted on €70m which the blues pulled out of the deal.
The 26-year-old midfielder has up until now spent his entire club career in Madrid in his native Spain, having begun his youth career at Real Madrid before switching to Atletico, with one loan spell at another capital city club Rayo Vallecano.
Do you think Chelsea really needed to sign Saul with the caliber of players they currently have? Drop your thoughts in the comment section and don’t forget to share. Thank you
