Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are unsure on Louis van Gaal’s method heading into the summer as the Daily Star revealed that they will compete with Manchester City for the signature of Atletico Madrid star Koke.
The publication says that the Red Devils are eyeing a cash plus Juan Mata deal for the Atletico Madrid midfielder, but that now could be in jeopardy with the news of Manchester City’s interest.
Despite the concern surrounding United’s performances on the field recently, someone who has remained a fan favourite through this tough time, is Mata, with the small Spaniard doing a good job regardless of the position he has been told to play.
The Red Devils have been long admirers of Koke as the 23-year-old has been instrumental in Atletico Madrid’s recent success.
But his recent performances have now inevitably led to heavy interest from the Premier League with Chelsea also looking to continue their raid for Atletico’s stars, having bought Diego Costa and Filipe Luis last summer.
Now it seems as though three English heavyweights will battle for his signature with City showing an interest.
Manchester United fans. Would you accept it, if Louis van Gaal chose to use Juan Mata in a swap deal? Let us know your thoughts below.
