According to DonBalon, Yannick Carrasco’s agent has confirmed bids from Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City.
The Spanish outlet claim to have spoken to Carrasco’s agent, Christophe Henrotay, who has confirmed of interest from Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and in addition, Juventus and Bayern Munich. The Belgian reportedly has a release clause of £86m (€100m) in a contract that ends in 2022. The reports come as Manchester United’s interest in Antoine Griezmann blossoms, but it’s highly unlikely the Red Devils would be able to sign both.
“Yannick Carrasco had an altercation with Simeone (already solved), which withdrew from the ownership. And his agent Christophe Henrotay has informed the rojiblancos leaders have offers Bayern, Manchester United, Chelsea, City and Juventus. Teams that have shown interest to the extent that barrier able to face 100 million contained in the newly implanted clause after extending contract until 2022.”
Carrasco, who’s made 17 appearances this season, scoring 6 goals, would be an exciting buy for any Premier League side. The Belgian scored in last year’s Champions League final, coming off the bench to grab the equaliser which took the game to extra time. Atletico later lost the game as Cristiano Ronaldo dealt the final blow, but it shows Carrasco can be a big game player, and with the Premier League’s competitiveness this year, landing the winger signature would be a very good bit of business.
