Saul Niguez’s decision to join Chelsea on loan from Atletico Madrid has come as a surprise since Thomas Tuchel’s side officially announced his move.
Sure enough, Saul, who landed in London since the end of August 2021, has not yet had the opportunity to play regularly. The player who plays as a midfielder is still unable to compete with Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho to Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
With this, he has only played five matches in all competitions played by Chelsea and has only started three times as a starter.
Tuchel, who slowly seemed to give a signal if Saul did not enter into his plans, made the team from the city of London, begin to consider ending the cooperation between the players with the Spanish passport.
In fact, Marca Football reports that Chelsea have been interested in terminating Saul’s loan contract when the 2022 winter transfer window opens, in January to be exact.
Although intending to do so, the Blues are in fact not so easy to do. Because, Atletico as the original club of Saul, it is claimed that they have no interest in returning their players before the loan period ends at the end of the 2021/22 season.
