Man United transfers: Atletico Madrid sporting director Jose Luis Caminero insists Diego Costa and Koke are going nowhere
Diego Costa and Koke won’t be leaving Atletico Madrid in January despite interest from Manchester United, according to the Spanish club’s sporting director.
The reigning Premier League champions have been linked with a move for Atletico duo Diego Costa and Koke in recent weeks after the club’s poor start to the domestic campaign.

Costa, 25, has been in sparkling form this term, netting 18 goals in 19 La Liga games for Diego Simeone’s men.
However Atletico sporting director Jose Luis Caminero is confident that Costa isn’t thinking about leaving the Spanish capital.
“The player has a clause of 38 millions euros and the big clubs in England know this,” Caminero is quoted as saying by Marca.
“Diego Costa has matured and is smart when it comes to decision making.
“Right now, Costa does not think of leaving, he is hooked on Atletico. He has re-signed a deal that is important, I am confident he will continue with us.”
On reported United interest in Koke, Caminero added: “I’m not surprised with this subject.
“He is a player who has improved considerably. It has also made it into the Spain squad and that puts you in the spotlight and opens more eyes.
“Koke will be with us for many years. I am convinced.”
