However, the move back to LaLiga has not worked out as expected for Saiz, who failed to command a regular place in their side as they secured an impressive fifth-place finish in LaLiga and it’s been widely reported that they have opted against making the move permanent.
But that has not stopped what appears to be another side making a loan approach for the 28-year-old. According to Football Insider, an unnamed La Liga outfit have now asked United if they can take Saiz on a temporary basis for next season.
But the Whites are only interested in offloading Saiz on a permanent basis, with Bielsa reportedly informing the player there is no way back for him at Le amid claims he could be forced to return to Thorp Arch for pre-season training if a transfer is not arranged before the players are due to report back in three weeks time.
Saiz cost Le around £3m when he arrived from Huesca in July 2017, and they recouped £500,000 in the form of a loan fee from Getafe. It’s reported Le are hoping for around £5million for the player who played 53 times for the club, scoring five goals.
Le, meanwhile, have been given hope of a deal for top target Helder Costa after Wolves decided to listen to offers for the Portuguese forward.
