Chelsea To Battle Man Utd For £47m Midfield Maestro – reports

Chelsea are set to enter the race for Atletico Madrid central midfielder Koke in the coming weeks.

This puts them in direct competition with the two sides who are chasing them in the Premier League, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The Old Trafford side thought they had missed out on Koke, with Man City supposedly having met Atletico to discuss his transfer in recent weeks.

However, according to the Daily Star, the race is wide open and Chelsea are back in contention.

The only issue for all three sides is Koke’s price tag at Atletico, with the La Liga champions not willing to see him depart for anything less than £47 million, a staggering fee.

That is not said to be putting Jose Mourinho off, who wants to sign the ultra talented midfielder and pip his title rivals to his signature.

There is no guarantee that Koke will be keen to leave Atletico, with the player having spent his entire career there.
