A number of Manchester United fans have been left disappointed today as Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez has announced his new club.

A few days ago, the Spain international, who has been linked with Man Utd by AS in recent times, teased fans on Twitter by saying he had an imminent announcement about a new club.

As we reported at the time, many United supporters took this to mean he could be hinting at a transfer to Old Trafford, which, with hindsight, makes them look a little silly really.

Social media can often provide clues about goings-on in the transfer market these days, but it seems unlikely that a big name like Saul would suddenly announce a deal from his own Twitter account when, despite the aforementioned links with United, there was not much in the way of recent reporting suggesting this move was close.
