News from the Spanish media this weekend suggests that Chelsea have already made an almost final decision on Saul Niguez’s future.

Hard blues at work

Of course, a busy summer of business in West London concluded at the end of August.

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 through the door at Stamford Bridge? Saul Niguez.

In what was seen at the time as a potential robbery by Thomas Tuchel’s men, Spanish international Saúl brought his talents to the English capital on loan for the season, with the option to buy.

Return of Atleti

The beginning of Saul’s life in England, however, has proven far from ideal …

Up to this point, the 26-year-old has only had a trio of appearances in all competitions.

Saul looked so off-beat in his Premier League arc, Thomas Tuchel finally had no choice but to hook the rookie after just 45 minutes of a clash with Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

Since then, the midfielder has gotten off to a lonely start, during a League Cup outing, also against Villa.

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.

And such claims, if the latest speculations circulating in your home country are something to go through, they may not be too far from the truth.

According to a report from the Spanish media. The reason, the West London hierarchy “has no intention” to activate its option to buy Saul, which is understood to be worth about 40 million euros.

Not only that, but it’s even suggested that Chelsea has already started looking for alternatives to her struggling loan star.

Inter Milan’s Marcelo Brozovic is one of those players who has been identified as a possible addition to Tuchel’s ranks in the middle of the park, with the Croatian’s contract expiring at the end of the season.

In turn, ‘everything seems to indicate’ that Saul will soon be on his way.
