The 26-year-old has been with Atletico his entire professional career having progressed through their youth ranks and has transitioned into a world-class midfielder since establishing himself in the first-team set-up.
Spending almost a decade at the Spanish capital club, Saul has made a total of 337 appearances for Atletico, winning the La Liga, Copa del Rey and Europa League titles in the process.
Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are negotiating for Saúl-Griezmann swap deal but there's still NO agreement. Barça insist they want money in the deal + players won't reduce their salaries. :flag_es: #FCB #Atleti
Saúl also received approaches from more than one Premier League club. :flag_black:

However, the Spaniard has fallen out of favour with manager Diego Simeone, losing a spot in his preferred area of central midfield, with the arrival of Rodrigo De Paul from Udinese pushing him further down the pecking order.
With that said, Atletico are now willing to let their one-club man fly the nest for €40m (£34.3m), despite him still having five years left on his current contract.
But where will the midfielder maestro be next season - Barca, United or Liverpool? Watch this space.
