Manchester United are chasing Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke. Koke has been likened to Barcelona star Xavi.

The Daily Mail says the 21-year old was on former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's radar last season after establishing himself at the heart of Atletico's midfield with a string of assured performances.

Koke has an escape clause of just over £16 million and is attracting strong interest from United and Barcelona after maintaining a level of form that has led many to compare him with Nou Camp maestro Xavi.
