    Atletico Madrids 24 year old central midfielder.

    I have watched him a lot over the past season and have been very impressed. He is dynamic,strong and has a very good range of passing this combined with his versatility (Fullback) makes me think he would be a great addition to our squad.

    Has anyone else seen much of him?

    I can't believe he doesn't seem to linked with a move as he looks like the type of midfield player us,Chelsea,Arsenal in particular could really do with.

    I've liked him for Atlético but seeing him the other day against Iceland elevated my opinion of him. He's an excellent footballer. He was shifting the ball across flanks, dribbling past opponents. No one could take the ball off him and he scored a goal to cap off an excellent performance. Probably the best performance by a single player against Iceland since Ronaldo beat us 8 years ago.

    I think he'd be a good purchase. Atlético's system doesn't do a great job of highlighting individual quality of some players and he may have flown under the radar because of that.

    I'm a fan. Very very difficult to dispossess and can play three positions to a high standard.

    Can you use it in a sentence?
    First time I particularly noticed him was against Iceland. Agree with Snow, he was excellent, best player on the pitch by a mile.

    He’s played a fair bit of this season at fullback, iirc?

    Very versatile indeed. Would be a good squad addition, though I’m not sure if the amount Atletico would want for him, would justify a squad player. He might eventually force his way into our starting XI - especially at fullback of course but it seems CM might be his best position.

    Uninviting name aside he does look pretty decent. Back up to Matic?

    There's a load of songs you could turn into chants for him (mostly by Andrew WK). I'm in.

    Good player, very strong if a little rash with his decision making at times.
    A decent player and would be a good addition to United's midfield but I wouldn't fancy our chances of getting him, Athleti wouldn't sell.

    Played very well this year and seems to be moving to week in week out player at Atletico.

    One question, why would he leave them? Europa League this season and two CL appearences in last four years so downgrade going to English club at this moment in time.

    Clueless. His poor positioning makes him constantly bother the teammates. Lacks skill and it looks like the ball is constantly trying to get away from him as if he were a rapist. Not very intelligent overall. Pass.
