Manchester United and Liverpool have both been overtaken in the race to sign Atletico Madrid’s burgeoning talent Koke.

Both Premier League powerhouses have been tracking the 21-year-old along with Barcelona, who are ready to make a move for him should they miss out on Chelsea star Ramires.Koke has been labelled as the next Xavi, and it has been mooted he could replace the midfield maestro himself after impressing Barca scouts with his performances for Atletico Madrid in La Liga this season.

But there appears to be a fresh twist in the transfer saga, with Serie A giants AC Milan reportedly surging ahead in the race for his signature.

Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo claims Milan’s owner Silvio Berlusconi has already conducted exploratory talks with Atletico to see whether or not a move for Koke is feasible.It is also understood Berlusconi is prepared to offer Koke £3.6 million a season to lure him from Atletico.

Koke has weighed in with two goals and eight assists for Atletico, who are just three points behind Barcelona.
