Barcelona are in pole position to complete the signing of Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid.
Despite their financial struggles, the Spanish midfielder has remained a target for the Blaugrana.
They are now favourites to land Saul, according to AS. That is despite the fact that an initial proposal for a swap deal for Antoine Griezmann appears to be off.
Saul has been coveted by Manchester United this summer while Chelsea and Liverpool have also shown their interest.
