Koke insists he is not concerned by speculation linking the Atletico Madrid midfielder with a move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils manager David Moyes, who replaced United legend Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer, reportedly attended Atletico’s 2-0 victory over Porto on Wednesday night.

I didn’t know anything (about Moyes watching on), but I’m not concerned (with any of that).

The 21-year-old playmaker impressed at the Vicente Calderon as Diego Simeone’s men finished top of Champions League Group G, with 16 points out of a possible 18.

Moyes was linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, Bayern Munich youngster Thiago Alcantara and Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrara during
the summer transfer window.

Despite interest from the Premier League champions, Koke is happy at Atletico after penning a new deal in the summer which runs until 2018.

“I didn’t know anything (about Moyes watching on), but I’m not concerned (with any of that). I renewed in the summer,” Koke said.

The Spain international has scored 10 goals in 133 appearances for Atletico after making his debut against Barcelona in 2009.
