Saul Niguez, a Chelsea midfielder, reveals his shirt number and discusses a critical Thomas Tuchel pledge.
Saul Niguez joined Chelsea on a last-minute deadline day transfer from Atletico Madrid.
After completing a last-minute transfer to Chelsea from Atletico Madrid on deadline day, Saul Niguez has hinted that he will wear the No 17 shirt. The agreement came to fruition on Tuesday afternoon, when a group of agents banded together to try to close the deal that had been rumored for weeks.
Saul has started all three La Liga games for Atletico this season, but the Spanish giants were ready to say their goodbyes to the midfielder, who signed a nine-year contract in 2017.
Chelsea will pay a £3.4 million loan fee and then have the option to sign Saul for £30 million at the conclusion of the season.
He is set to arrive in London today, giving him the opportunity to meet some of his new teammates.
The Spaniard was left out of Luis Enrique’s last team for World Cup qualifiers against Sweden, Georgia, and Kosovo, which means he will have some time to recover before starting his new job.
There was some doubt as to whether the paperwork had been delivered in time for the Spanish deadline late last night, but Chelsea were able to confirm the 26-year-signing, old’s much to the delight of their fans.
Saul told Chelsea’s official website, “I am very thrilled to undertake this new adventure with Chelsea.” “Blues supporters, I am now one of you, and I can’t wait to put on the jersey, start training, and meet you all. “Hope to see you soon!”
Saul was relieved to have completed the shift, and he immediately went on a Twitch stream with Ibai Llanos to express his feelings about being a Blue.
When asked about possible shirt numbers, Saul said that he will be wearing the No 17 jersey for Chelsea.
