The Spaniard left it late to seal a temporary switch to the Premier League side on deadline day.

However, within minutes he was on Twitch with prominent Spanish streamer Ibai Llanos.

Llanos, who has a close relationship with many top footballers including Lionel Messi, spoke to Saul about moving to England

leaving his family behind, not knowing the language and the influence of Spaniards in Chelsea’s dressing room.

‘Before i spoke with (Diego) Simeone,’ he explained. ‘I have been playing in different positions for three seasons.

‘For me i owe everything to Diego and he must be selfish and think of the group.

‘I saw myself stuck in a position that was not mine. Chelsea’s option was to get out of the comfort zone, a challenge.’

‘Saul has long wanted to play further forward at Atletico, closer to that of a No 10, rather than a defensive midfield role which Simeone has long preferred.’

Conversations in training about being deployed in ‘my position’ proved fruitless and it was advised that he would be best served moving elsewhere.

‘I asked Simeone and Miguel Angel to train in my position,’ he added.

‘Bring understand that he refused and from there they decided this. I’ve been here since I was 13 and it’s very hard.

Juts to take up other movements and positions that I did not perform from the other position. It is the most important reason for my decision.’

A key factor in Sauls decision to join Chelsea is the presence of Blues goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The 26-year-old Spaniard has a close relationship with Saul having come through Spain’s various youth teams together.

Saul said: ‘It is very important that he be there. It is an important step.

‘If he had not been there, it would have been different.

‘Going on loan for a year and having a partner with whom I have been spending many years in the lower categories of the National Team is important.’

The midfielder conceded that he speaks very limited English and does hold concerns that he will be moving to London without his family but that he is excited to be joining the European champions for the 2021-22 season.

‘The idea is to compete and find myself,’ he said. ‘See the Saul that I want to see. It was frustrating.

‘Being difficult i wasn’t able to show people what I was capable of.

Not learning, not improving, and not growing was frustrating. I think this decision can help me unblock myself.’
