Champagne Charlie sniffs at United switch

Atletico Madrid midfielder, Koke, has today cast doubt over the possibility of any move to Old Trafford with his insistence of happiness at what he call his “home”.

United have long been linked with a potential move for Koke and were rumoured to be preparing a buy-out clause triggering £48m bid in the hope of luring him away from the current La Liga champions, those hopes seem to have been dashed by the players latest comments.

In an interview with Spanish sportspaper, Marca, Koke says “I’m happy here, this is my home, I’ve been at Atletico since a very young age and I feel very comfortable here”.

The 22yr old went on “I have a long-term contract. It’s flattering for big clubs to be interested in you, but I’m really happy here.”
