Thomas Tuchel's wealth options.
The Spanish international has been a key player taking off Diego Costa's reign at Atletico, but fell down pecking order last
season as Los Rojiblancos won La Liga. The 26-year-old had been linked with a move to Barcelona earlier in the window as a
makeweight in a deal to bring Antoine Griezmann back to Atletico Madrid.
But Griezmann reportedly heading to the Wanda Metropolitan on loan, Saul has been allowed to leave for London to free up
space on Atletico's wage bill.
Saul has scored 43 goals in 340 Atletico appearances, including the one that beat Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich in the first leg
of the Champions League semifinals in 2016 as Simeone's men reached the final for a second time in two years.
His goal scoring prowess adds an extra dimension to Chelsea's midfield with goals from open play few and far between from
the established trio Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and N'Golo Kante.
