Saul’s future at Chelsea remains a stranger and even british tabloids are unclear on this point. The Atlético de Madrid midfielder left the ranks of the “colchoneros” to embark on the English adventure, but he has not yet managed to shine in the Premier League and there are doubts on its continuity.
During the first week of February, the ‘Daily Mail’ published that the leaders of Stamford Bridge were ready to exercise the call option of the player at the end of the season. Today ‘The Telegraph’ reports in an article about the club’s plans for next season that the Spaniard is not one of themlike his compatriot Kepa.
For now, Thomas Tuchel don’t consider him one of their most important players, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he returned to the squad. Cholo Simeone for next season. The reds and whites are also in worse shape than their expectations for this year suggest.
In any case, Saul’s situation, from a personal point of view, is complicated. Kieran Trippier is one of his former teammates who found his place in England. He was happy in his time at Atlético and now he has become one of the great leaders of the new Newcastle. He is even a captain.
