Saul Niguez was the star of the show for Spain as he scored a hat-trick against Italy in the Under-21 European Championship semi-final on Tuesday evening.

The 22-year-old midfielder is continuing on from his impressive season with Atletico Madrid at this summer’s tournament where he’s currently the top scorer with five goals.

The pick of the bench came against Italy on Tuesday night as he rifled an effort from 30 yards out past Gianluigi Donnarumma.

David De Gea was quick to show his love for the sublime strike on Twitter.

And Manchester United fans took it as a chance to urge their No.1 goalkeeper to persuade the Atletico Madrid midfielder to join Old Trafford…
