Diego Simeone has insisted that Saul Niguez is still integral to Atletico Madrid but accepted that the midfielder is unhappy at his current role.

The Spain international is a target for Barcelona, Manchester United and Liverpool this summer having spent more than a decade at Atletico.

Simeone spoke about how Saul, who could leave for £34m, has become disillusioned by his role in the team as a utility player.

'And I consider that Saul became Saul by playing everywhere, he or many of those around him see it as something negative.

Versatility is one of Saul's strengths but seems to have worked against him in that he wants a specific, defined role and is willing to move away to achieve it.

Liverpool are searching for a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum but require the sale of fringe players before making a move, while United's interest in Saul is long held.

Saul currently earns £300,000-a-week and Atletico are not averse to removing his huge wage from the books despite his contribution to the team.
