When you are piecing together a puzzle, especially a rather large one, you will not complete it immediately. It will take time, pondering and thorough analysis. The same is true for the task Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has embarked on at Manchester United.

The Norwegian is aspiring to build a complex puzzle, one focused on getting the Red Devils back to where they belong. It is an ambitious endeavour. However, bit by pit the former cult hero of the Stretford End is piecing it together and edging closer to completion.

The key foundations have certainly been built at Old Trafford. Solskjaer has built the core of the team thanks to the likes of Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and the latest arrival of Bruno Fernandes. The trio certainly have what it takes to take the club to the next level.

Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer just needs the final pieces of the jigsaw.

One of the key pieces will be to find a partner in midfield for Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese midfielder has made a transformative impact on the team since his arrival, however in order to bring the best out from Fernandes, he needs a strong and compact structure behind him.

According to the Daily Express United see Saul Niguez as the ‘ideal partner’ for Bruno Fernandes. The report by the English outlet also cite Spanish news source Marca who claim the Red Devils will have to £135 million in order to land the Spanish international.

Saul Niguez has been the star of a well oiled Diego Simone Atletico Madrid side for some time now. The composed and agile midfielder looks well suited to the hustle and bustle of the Premier League. His bulky stature and his exuberant energy is exactly what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs for his explosive style of play.

However if Marca’s reports about Saul Niguez’s value are true, the Red Devils might have to look elsewhere. Regardless of the quality Saul Niguez possess, the Spanish international is not worth the amount Atletico Madrid are demanding for him.
