Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez says he will soon announce his “new club”.
The Spain international has long been linked with a move to Manchester United.
But in a cryptic Twitter post, the 25-year-old – who has played 37 games for Atletico this season, scoring four goals – said to his followers they would have to wait for his announcement.
On Sunday, he wrote:
“New club. I’ll announce it in three days…”
If the news is transfer related, it would not be the first time Atletico fans have had to deal with players creating a spectacle around their departure from the club.
Two years ago, Antoine Griezmann released a half-hour long documentary, aired on Spanish TV, in which he deliberated whether he should stay at the club or leave.
