    The 25-year-old midfielder has been linked with United persistently in recent seasons, so you might have forgiven some of the denizens of Greater Manchester for pricking their ears.

    But here’s the story: It looks as if he and his brother Aaron, who plays for Malaga, are setting up their own football academy in Spain.

    Club Costa City will be based in their hometown of Elche and, as Saul explained via Instagram live on Wednesday, will be a grassroots project, made up of around 30 teams and 500 players aged four to 18.

    Atletico Madrid said: “We know how excited you are, and when things are done with this much excitement, they always turn out well. Good luck on your new adventure.”
