David Moyes will make a stunning £30m raid for Spanish sensation Koke as soon as the transfer window opens next week.
The Manchester United manager made two personal checks on the 21 year old, and was so impressed that he has sanctioned a massive bid to land the attacking midfielder on January 1.
Moyes jetted out last week to watch the Atletico Madrid midfielder in person for the second time, after making the 21 year old star his number one target in the New Year.
It was the second time he has personally checked out the player, and the Mirror can reveal he has had Koke checked out seven times in recent weeks, the latest last weekend.
And the Scots boss is now convinced enough by Spain’s latest star, and hoping to do a deal as soon as the window opens on January 1.
Koke has hit the headlines with some audacious performances for Atletico this season, and has been so impressive he has forced his way into the all-star national team line up.
He was one of the main stars in the Spain side that won the European U21 Championships last summer, and that instantly elevated him into the senior squad, with boss Vicente Del Bosque calling him up for the World Cup qualifying campaign.

With the Spanish over-run with top class midfield talent, that is some endorsement of his amazing potential, and Moyes is keen to jump the queue of top clubs interested in the youngster.
Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Liverpool have all kept a close watch on the midfielder, but Moyes plans to steal a march by refusing to wait until the summer to make his move.
The player was available at a cut-price release clause fee of less than £17million last summer, but he signed a new deal that upped the get out written into his contract to 35million Euros.
With Marouane Fellaini out for two months though, Moyes is desperate to get a box to box midfielder, in an attempt to finally replace schemer Paul Scholes, who is still firmly missed at Old Trafford.
And that will see the club’s board prepared to sanction a £30m-plus bid to try and get their man in January, and head off an auction with some of Europe’s top clubs next summer.
Moyes was initially thought to have been in Madrid to watch Atletico’s highly rated striker Diego Costa, but in fact he was looking at the player he believes in the perfect solution to his midfield problems.
