Chelsea signing Saul: Barcelona was press talk

Chelsea signing Saul Niguez insists Barcelona was never an option this summer.

The Atletico Madrid midfielder joined Chelsea in a straight loan arrangement yesterday.

Saul had also been mentioned as a target for Barcelona in a swap for Antoine Griezmann, but he insists the Catalans were never in contact.

Griezmann returned to Atletico in the final hours of the market last night.
