I genuinely can't understand why he's so highly rated amongst football fans. Is it a hipster thing or have I been watching the wrong games for the past couple of years?

He's a very good crosser of the ball, gets stuck in and takes an excellent set piece but aside from that watching him play football is an eyesore. What makes him so special that he gets quoted as a £50m player in the tabloids?

Depends of what you are looking for, Koke is a fantastically consistent player, he does nothing flashy, but he does everything right, and can adapt to multiple roles in midfield.

He is not a super star but more of a Paul George type of player.

Shame gundogan have back issues, he was gettingnto some sick level. Still havent seen a young CM do what he did in europe. Maybe just Verratti...

Another great thread by Gil after that on Gotze.
I totally agree with it.

Koke is a tidy little player. I wouldn't judge him based on our game yesterday because he never really saw the ball much to have a proper impact same as Griezmann

He has Xavi's annoying mouth, his passing qualities but he is alot classier on the pitch. Barca would do well to get him
