Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfield target Koke has admitted he is delighted with reports linking him with a move to the Red Devils, reports Sport Witness.

The Premier League champions are reportedly keen on bringing the Spain international to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.

Manchester United would have to meet the 21-year-old's £16million release clause if they were to prise the highly-rated starlet away from the Vicente Calderon.

Koke, who has been capped seven times for Spain, has been in fine form for Diego Simeone's side this season.

The attacking midfielder has claimed eight assists and scored three goals in 15 La Liga appearances.

His fantastic start to the season has alerted the attention of Premier League duo Manchester United and Liverpool, who are set to battle it out to sign the Spanish youngster.

Koke's agent, speaking to AS, said on speculation linking his client with a move to the Premier League.

"At 21 Koke feels he has yet to face many challenges with Atletico... Koke appreciates the interest shown by some, but he feels very valued by the club."
