Manchester United to break bank for the Spanish Ross Barkley?

Koke is every bit as technically gifted as Pogba


It is being reported again today that Manchester United will make a bid of €48 million for Atletico’s brilliant midfielder Koke to trigger the release clause in the player’s contract in the hope of making him their first summer signing.

The Express reports:

MANCHESTER UNITED are hoping to make Koke their first major acquisition of the summer by meeting his £48million release clause.

It is also thought that United have offered him £3m-per-season as a financial sweetener to make the switch.

Manchester United need a really powerful and charismatic player for the heart of their midfield. Cesc Fabregas has long been mooted as a creative solution for Manchester United but this guy, at 5 years younger, might be an even more dynamic and multi-talented player for the hub of the team.

He’s developing fast and, at the age of 22, is adding goals to an already very impressive game (7 this season).

He reminds us a little of Ross Barkley – a force of nature and the perfect physical specimen for the modern game.

He’s very difficult to knock off the ball, rarely cedes possession, has pace, great technique, loves to get forward but doesn’t shirk his defensive duties. Overall, he’s just a brilliant box to box player who can add steel as well as guile to Manchester United’s ailing midfield.

Whichever way Mancester United go this summer it doesn’t look as if it’s gonna be cheap for them.

At about £40 million Koke represents a little bit more of a gamble than the highly accomplished Fabregas. But fortune regularly favours the brave and Koke could turn out to be an even better player.

Let’s have a look at the brilliant midfielder in action. Manchester United fans: Is Koke the man for the job?

    Koke standards doesn’t fits manchester united because they aren’t in the champions league, and UAEFA Europa league.I think is a perfect signing for Barcelona.
