Man United ‘very interested’ in signing 25-year-old winger: report

Manchester United’s summer transfer window was one to forget. Edward Woodward didn’t help Jose Mourinho out in that regard, with a lack of investment eventually costing the self-proclaimed Special One his job.

Now, six months down the line, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is at the wheel and helping his former employers move in the right direction. Heavy investment in the squad is still needed, though, and it looks as though the Red Devils are weighing up possible moves.

One particular player United are seemingly eyeing is Belgium international Yannick Carrasco. The ex-Atletico Madrid winger has moved over to China, but clearly, he’s still turning heads in Europe – that’s if what his wife is saying is true…

“They [Manchester United] are very interested.” Noemie Happart told Belgian media outlet RTBF Sport, translated by talkSPORT.

“I do not hide it but nothing is signed. Yannick and his club leave tomorrow in preparation in Spain.

“Yannick feels good in China but it’s a very different culture, it’s far from our families and our friends.

Carrasco is an excellent wide man and there is no doubt that he’d add an awful lot of quality and depth to our squad.

However, I always have concerns about players who move to China. The main motive behind that tends to be huge wages are on offer and they don’t really care about football per-say. Carrasco has been away from the top level while over in China and it may take him some time to find his feet once again.

If the price is right I’d bring him in, but there is no way I’d recommend breaking the bank to sign a guy who’s likely going to be in and out of the team.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
