Saul, a Chelsea midfielder on loan at Stamford Bridge, is said to wish to leave the club following a difficult start.

The Spain international joined the Blues on a season-long loan in the summer, but he has struggled to make an impression under Thomas Tuchel's limited playing time.

Saul's representatives, according to Todo Fichajes, appear to be arranging his departure from Chelsea, with a possible loan to Barcelona being considered.

It's surprising that a quality player like Saul hasn't been able to make an impact in England, but Chelsea already had a solid center midfield, so it's debatable if this loan signing was really necessary.

Chelsea's first-choice players in that position include N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, and Mateo Kovacic, although Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley are capable squad players.

Furthermore, gifted teenager Conor Gallagher has had a highly impressive loan spell at Crystal Palace this season, and might be a future option for Tuchel.

Saul's greatest chance of reviving his career is to return to La Liga, though it's hard to see why Barcelona would be interested in signing him right now.
