Manchester United & Liverpool target Koke content in Spain

Published Add your comment

Atletico Madrid star Koke has no desire to leave Spain for the Premier League, report AS.

The 21-year-old has attracted interest from a host of leading clubs from around Europe thanks to his sterling performances over the past few seasons.

Both Manchester United and Liverpool have been linked with a move for the £16 million for the midfielder, who has seven caps for Spain.

Some reports even went as far to suggest that Manchester United would only be allowed to lure their man to Old Trafford if Chelsea allowed Kevin de Bruyne to head to the Vicente Calderon.

However according to AS, while propositions from both the Red Devils and Liverpool have been put forward, Koke has no intention to move ahead of the World Cup next summer - a fact confirmed by his agent.

Manchester United are likely to spend big in the January transfer window in order to bolster their slim chances of working their way back into the title race.

David Moyes' side slipped to their fourth Premier League defeat of the season against Everton last night that leaves them 12 points adrift of leaders Arsenal.

Liverpool meanwhile bought in a raft of new signings in the summer but could be tempted into the market for a new midfielder.

The Reds claimed a superb 5-1 win over Norwich last night to reinforce their top four credentials, with striker Luis Suarez finding the back of the net four times.
