The 21-year-old has been high on David Moyes’ list of priorities since the close of the summer transfer window and is expected to make an approach for the player in the new year after admitting that he has money to spend on strengthening his squad.
The United boss was in the stands to watch him star in Atletico’s victory over Porto in the Champions League last week, but has since found out that he may face difficulty in bringing him on board.
Reports in Spain have suggested that Koke is not willing to leave Atletico in January as doing so may harm his chances at forcing his way into the Spain squad for next summer’s World Cup.
He also feels that he would be foolish to leave so soon considering the club’s fine start to the season that currently sees them in second place behind Barcelona.
