Saúl renews until 2021

The midfielder signed his new contract that will link him with our club until the 2020-21 season.

Saúl Ñíguez has extended his contractual relationship with our club until 30th June 2021. The player from the ranks reached an agreement with the club to extend their relationship for another season and signed his new contract. The midfielder was very happy with the reached agreement: "I'm very happy to be able to continue defending this shirt," he said after the signing. 

Atlético’s midfielder came to the red and white Academy in 2007 and moved up to debut with 16 years in the reserve team. He made the first team with his debut in the Europa League against Besiktas on 8th March 2012. After a year on loan at Rayo Vallecano (2013-14), he returned last season and played a great year, becoming a key element in the first team this season. He has played a total of 45 games, scoring 8 goals in all competitions, some as decisive as the one scored against Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals at the Vicente Calderón. His great performances have made him be included in the preliminary list of 25 players called by Vicente del Bosque for the Euro 2016 in France. 

Jose Luis Perez Caminero stated his satisfaction with the agreement reached: "We are all very happy with the agreement reached with Saúl. He is an excellent football player, who has been trained in our Academy and who reinforces our commitment to the home-grown players. He is at a great moment, but he will still grow much more because he has huge potential."
