Confirmation of the fee that will be required for Premier League giants Chelsea to make the addition of Saul Niguez permanent next summer will take place on Thursday.
Hard blues at work
Of course, a busy summer of business in West London wrapped up two weeks ago.
Already with a Champions League winning team, most of the work done by those in a position of power at Stamford Bridge was done in the form of expenses.
The likes of Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma and Victor Moses were permanently relocated, while many others left for their respective stints outside the club.
On the innings front, meanwhile, the return of Romelu Lukaku, of course, made the most headlines.
The Belgian, fresh off a brilliant campaign in Italy with Inter Milan, opted to re-link with the Pensioners, in a treatment worth just £ 100 million.
Then, just when it looked like Marina Granovskaia and company. had asked for time in his search for backup, another high-profile arrival was looming on the day of the transfer deadline.
The last player to walk through the gate at Stamford Bridge? Saul Niguez.
In a potential robbery by Thomas Tuchel’s men, Spanish international Saúl has brought his talents to the English capital on loan for the season, with the option to buy.
40 million euros man
The beginning of Niguez’s life in England since then has proven far from ideal, as the 26-year-old only had a lonely appearance.
This happened last weekend, in a Premier League match with Aston Villa.
However, Saul seemed so off-beat, that Thomas Tuchel finally had no choice but to hook the rookie after just 45 minutes at Stamford Bridge.
The man on loan from Atleti, in turn, was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s Champions League showdown with Zenit St. Petersburg on Tuesday night.
Better Haul Saul, rather. I’m right?
Either way, he leaves at halftime after a heinous display. Therefore, there.

In turn, some have already suggested that Chelsea could simply make use of Saúl’s skills for the 2021/22 campaign, before sending him back to base in the Spanish capital next summer.
However, such claims are, of course, reactionary, to say the least.
If instead, as many predict, Saul continues to turn things around and shine in pensioners’ blue for months to come, then an idea of exactly how much it will cost the Stamford Bridge board to make his move permanent today has been. next.
The information is courtesy of transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who, speaking at the Here we go podcast, confirmed that the total disbursement, including the loan commission, would amount to a considerable 40 million euros:
Let me clarify one thing. The clause, the purchase option, because it is a loan of 5 million euros (4.3 million pounds sterling) with a purchase option.
‘It’s not € 30 million (£ 25.7 million) as I sometimes see, it’s € 40 million (£ 34.2 million). So it is a loan of 5 million euros, a purchase option of 40 million euros. These are the details of the deal with Saul.
