This is job security! Atletico Madrid hand Saul NINE-YEAR deal

Saul Niguez is rapidly growing into a symbol of Atletico Madrid and, eager to recognise their youth product as the pillar of the club, president Enrique Cerezo presented the 22-year-old a whopping nine-year contract extension that keeps him there till 2026. The first Spanish flagbearer in the ilk of Fernando Torres, Saul joins Antoine Griezmann and Koke in ushering what many hope will be a golden age for the club with the trio likely to play at the new stadium, Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, well into the next decade.
