The Metro provide Manchester United fans with their latest fix of gossip here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that one of David Moyes’ top targets could well be set to join the club this winter.
The publication claims that Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke is set to be subject of a £25 million bid once the transfer window opens. As one of our punters quips, that is no small change, and given the club are in dire need of a midfielder, it seems Moyes is pretty keen on targeting the top young stars around Europe.
Koke has been on his wish list for some time now, and the creative player has shown his star credentials in an Atleti side who have taken no prisoners this season- especially at home.
The club have been on a sensational role and have recorded 100% of points at the Vicente Calderon, with Koke being a huge part of that success. The midfielder is not the only player in huge demand however, with forward Diego Costa also being tracked by both Chelsea and Arsenal as the transfer window approaches. Quite what manager Diego Simeone will think of his stars being on the most wanted list remains to be seen, but we in the tavern think they would be a joy to watch week in week out in the Premier League.
Will Koke make the move? Let us know your thoughts below.
