Barcelona challenge Liverpool, Man Utd for Atletico Madrid whizkid Koke

Barcelona face Premier League competition for Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke.

The Daily Express says while 21-year-old Koke remains Gerardo Martino's first option but the Argentine boss is aware of the interest from Manchester United and Liverpool and is making a contingency plan in case he gets trumped by the British clubs.

Koke - who has been called the next Xavi - has a very real chance of replacing the real Xavi at Camp Nou, having impressed both Barca scouts and Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque with his performances for Atletico this season.
