After Jules Koundé (Sevilla FC)’s transfer was broken, the Champions League winner stepped up his efforts to free Saul from Atletico Madrid – and he was successful. The 26-year-old has a contract with Colchoneros until 2026, but is now on loan to London. Chelsea also has a buy option.
Before the transfer was perfect, she must have been shivering. There have been reports of problems with the Spanish transfer reporting system. However, it appears that they broke up and the deal was announced as firm. “I look forward to my new challenge at Chelsea,” Saul was quoted as saying in a club statement.

Meanwhile, director Marina Granovskaya confirmed that Saul was a “proven winner” and “a player with tremendous experience” and will help the club meet the challenges of next season.
Saul has played only in Madrid so far, first in the youth ranks of Real Madrid, and later in Atlético, where he scored 53 goals in 447 matches. With Rojiblancos, he won the European League twice, the King’s Cup once and the championship last season. He only knew the Premier League from TV – and that will change now.
