Koke dismisses Manchester United move rumours

Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke dismisses reports claiming that he is looking to join Manchester United.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke has dismissed reports claiming that he is looking to join Manchester United, with the Spaniard stating that he is "very happy" at the Vicente Calderon.

The 22-year-old has helped the Colchoneros to the top of La Liga this season, as well as scoring the goal against Barcelona that sent his side through to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

"I am very happy and I do not think about leaving [Atletico Madrid] right now," he is quoted as saying by The Express.

"I am happy at home, I want to continue here and that is why I have a long contract. The rumours in the paper will have no impact on my game. I am young, but I am calm.

"Now is the best moment to enjoy being at Atletico. My future here will be long."

Koke signed a new contract with Diego Simeone's side in January that tied the midfielder to the Liga club until 2018.
