Man City are close to wrapping up a deal to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, ESPN reports.

It is claimed that Pep Guardiola has identified the 24-year-old as a long-term successor to Fernandinho after losing out on Frenkie de Jong to Barcelona.

Barca had also been keeping tabs on Saul, but have allegedly pulled out of the race to sign him after hearing City had made firm steps to push through a deal.
