Manchester United plan double swoop on Atletico Madrid


Manchester United are reportedly interested in making a double swoop for Atletico Madrid duo Diego Costa and Diego Simeone.

The officials at Old Trafford have been left less than impressed with new manager David Moyes, and after their 3-0 defeat at home to fierce-rivals Liverpool, Moyes’ future is even more in doubt now as they look set to miss out on Champions League football for the first time in over a decade.

Despite Moyes being hand-picked by Sir Alex Ferguson, the former-Everton boss has not been successful so far during his reign and it’s believed officials at the club are putting together a potential replacement list, and Simeone is high on it after his success with Atletico.

The Argentine has guided the La Liga side to the Champions League and is also currently battling it out with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid for the league title.

United are also keen in signing their star-man on the pitch, Diego Costa, and although a fee hasn’t been mentioned, they are willing to spend big in order to sign the Spaniard.

Costa has scored 21 goals so far this season and has also attracted interest from United’s rivals, Chelsea.
