Bayern Munich Line Up Sensational Swap-Deal for Star Manchester Utd Target

By on December 16, 2013

According to reports, Bayern Munich are preparing a sensational swap deal that would see Xherdan Shaqiri move to Atletico Madrid and see Manchester United target Koke move in the opposite direction.

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly a big fan of Koke, and has been monitoring the player for some time – ever since his previous tenure in charge of Barcelona in La Liga.

The 21-year-old has been in excellent form this season, and is rumoured to have a number of suitors keen on gaining his services this summer.

Bayern Munich hope to offer Shaqiri in order to sweeten the deal and finally coax a move in their favour.

Shaqiri has been unable to force his way permanently into the first team at Bayern Munich, but remains a highly talented player who could supplement many top European sides very well. Bayern are well-stocked with similar players, and Shaqiri is known to be some way down the Munich pecking order.

Manchester United manager David Moyes has been keen on Koke as well, and so he will hope that Munich’s offer does not lead to a confirmed transfer.
