Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez says he will soon announce his "new club".
The Spain international has long been linked with a move to Manchester United.
But in a cryptic Twitter post, the 25-year-old - who has played 37 games for Atletico this season, scoring four goals - said to his followers they would have to wait for his announcement.
On Sunday, he wrote: "New club. I'll announce it in three days…"
If the news is transfer related, it would not be the first time Atletico fans have had to deal with players creating a spectacle around their departure from the club.
Two different endings to the documentary, which showcased the France international deliberating at his French mansion with family, were recorded - one saying he would stay, the other that he would go.
He opted to remain, only to leave for Barcelona a year later.
Manchester United continue to be linked with a move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez - but in which areas does he excel?
Reports in the British media claim United will attempt to lure the player - who has a £135m buyout clause - by offering him a wage increase to £200,000 a week.
Paul Pogba's future remains uncertain and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's scouts have reportedly been tracking the Spain international as a potential replacement this summer.
