The Sun says Chelsea’s are in pole position to spend £40million on Atletico Madrid’s Koke. They are ahead of Manchester City, who also fancy him to replace Yaya Toure. Oh, and Manchester United are also “long-term admirers” of the Spain player.
But why are Chelsea more likely to sign him? The Sun says:
