Manchester United set to swoop for Atletico Madrid star after Champions League scouting mission

Manchester United have long been linked with Atletico Madrid's midfield starlet Koke and new boss David Moyes did little on Wednesday night to quell speculation suggesting the Premier League champions interested in the player.

Moyes was spotted at Madrid's Champions League game against Porto in Spain, likely scouting the Old Trafford club's target after confirming that he is ready to spend in the January transfer window and with results going his way with United, he'll be keen to land a player that can bolster the Red Devils under strength midfield.

The under-fire Manchester United boss mixed with supporters at Atletico's Vicente Calderon Stadium as he ran the rule over the 21-year-old talent.

It it thought a bid of over £15 million will be needed to prise Koke away from Atletico in January and figure looks set to rise with the likes of Real Madrid and AC Milan reportedly interested in the players signature.
