Manchester United continue Koke pursuit

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are not prepared to give up in their pursuit of Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke as David Moyes strives to recruit a creative player of some repute before the close of the January transfer window.

Koke has scored four goals and provided eight assists to propel Atletico to level top of La Liga after 17 games played, with Barcelona only clear of Diego Simeone's side courtesy of a superior goal difference.

The 21-year-old's performances have led to links with Manchester United and reports in the Spanish press claim the Premier League champions are constantly in contact with Atleti over a proposed deal.

A report in AS (as translated by Sport Witness) claims Manchester United are calling Atleti almost every other day in the hope of convincing them to sanction a deal that will see Koke arrive at Old Trafford before the deadline.

Moyes is reported to be considering a formal bid in the region of £30 million in the hope of clinching the signature of Koke, and finally complete the task of acquiring a player to add extra cut and thrust to his midfield.

The Manchester United manager had identified the signing of a creative midfielder as a priority following his arrival at the club but failed miserably in pursuit of a number of targets during the summer transfer period.
