Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of Yannick Carrasco at Metropolitano Stadium. The reports in England suggested that Manchester United are tracking Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Carrasco. The 29-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Belgium international was signed by Atletico in 2020 from Dalian Professional for a fee of 27 million euros. He has a contract until 2024 with the club.
He has found the back of the net on four occasions and picked up two assists in 27 matches for Atletico Madrid this season across various competitions.
The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Belgium. His record for Belgium is impressive. Carrasco has scored 8 goals in 62 matches for Belgium at senior level.
Erik ten Hag is eager to add a winger to the squad. He wants an experienced player that can be a leader on and off the pitch for him. The Belgium international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Ten Hag wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Someone with Carrasco’s skillset will undoubtedly add more quality to Erik ten Hag‘s attack.
The former Dalian Professional man has the talent to play many roles in attack. His arrival would give Manchester United some much needed tactical flexibility.
World Football Rumours
According to the report, “Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Carrasco remains a Manchester United target for the coming summer. The Spaniards are already said to have set up a deal with Barcelona for the Belgium star, 29. But AS says United also have one eye on the 62-cap ace, having considered him in January. Carrasco only has 18 months left on his Atletico deal and it’s claimed his standing under boss Diego Simeone has dipped. He’s rated at around 20 million euros nearly £18m.”
If Manchester United can agree on a fee with Atletico, the deal should be easy to complete.
Good signing for Manchester United?
If Yannick Carrasco is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for United.
All in all, Carrasco will be an ideal choice for Ten Hag as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his attackers.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Manchester United come calling for Carrasco this summer.
