Manchester United now favourites to sign midfield genius

Watching the transfer speculation about Manchester United is already starting to feel like being pushed on a playground roundabout way too quickly – and it’s not even January.

With so many midfield names in the hat of speculation it’s hard to work out who David Moyes will actually try to sign this winter. The most comforting news that we can offer, is that we think it’s highly likely that signings will be made by Manchester United, in an effort to improve their domestic form and overall performance level.

The team is absolutely crying out for a creative midfielder. Nevermind trying to buy more defensive midfielders to solidify the side. United need players who can get their head up and pass the ball forward – players you can exploit the brilliant talents of Manchester United’s forward line.

One such player who could potentially fulfil that role is Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke. The Spain international is only 21 years of age but already has a fantastic football brain and maturity beyond his years.

Having scored 10 goals in under 100 appearances for Madrid he also knows where the goal is. And now Manchester United have been installed as favourites, by bookmakers Skybet, for his signature in January. With really short odds of 13/8 Skybet obviously feel that David Moyes was indeed in Spain in the week to scout Koke.

We still think that this one is far from being complete. The club is enjoying a brilliant season and he seems settled in Madrid. With his place on the plane to Brazil far from assured one would imagine he would prefer to stay in Spain until after the summer.

What is hard to argue is that Koke would improve Manchester United. Let’s see him in action.
