It turns out, as most had predicted, the Spanish midfielder’s cryptic social media post at the start of the week was not transfer-related

Rumoured Manchester United target Saul Niguez has made the big reveal about his “new club”, which is the creation of a youth team in his home region of Alicante.

The Atletico Madrid midfielder had the rumour mill turning earlier this week when he posted a cryptic message on social media that read “New club: I’ll announce [it] in three days”.

United have long been linked with a move for the Spain midfielder, while the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have also been among his reported suitors ahead of the summer transfer window.

However, with six years still to run on his Atletico contract and a reported €150 million (£134m/$168m) release clause, it always seemed a little unlikely Saul’s news would be transfer-related.

And so it has proven to be, with the 25-year-old announcing the creation of Costa City Club along with his brother Aaron.
