Koke has had a fantastic season and really stood out in what turned out to be a fantastic year for the Madrid club. Manchester United have identified Koke as a target this summer and were hopeful they could negotiate a deal for the 22-year-old, but Atletico are very reluctant to sell so United could go on to activate his £48m release clause.
Koke could be just what Manchester United are looking for, it has been discussed on many a Manchester United blog, the £48million price tag does seem very high but United for years haven’t filled the void in the midfield, now is the time with Louis van Gaal taking charge this would be a huge statement signing. Of course there are other options aswell, Strootman, Kroos and Fabregas have been linked with Manchester United over the past few months.
United would offer Koke a £60,000 a week contract but would be willing to up that if that’s what it takes to land the Spainard.
What do you think? Is the price tag too much? Are the better options available?
