Atletico Madrid are interested in Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne. Atletico, which already count on Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois, are keen to take De Bruyne off Blues hands in January.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is open to the deal, with the prospect of discussing a swap involving Koke on the agenda.

Manchester United are also interested in Koke, but Mourinho can use De Bruyne as his trump card in January negotiations.
