Yannick Carrasco has become the third Atletico Madrid player to be linked with Manchester United this week.
It has been reported that the Red Devils are preparing an ambitious bid to sign Atleti striker Joao Felix, however, it seems highly unlikely that move will happen.
Their move for Brazilian striker Mathues Cunha, who is also plying his trade with the LaLiga side, looks more likely with Man United agreeing a £42m deal for him.
And The Daily Telegraph reports that Carrasco, who is believed to be valued at £25million, is on Erik ten Hag’s list of potential targets ahead of the September 1 deadline.
Although they signed Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen in the summer, the transfer window has been very frustrating for Man United.
There may be a question mark or two over whether signing Carrasco, who left Atleti in 2018 to spend two years with Chinese club Dalian Professional, would be the right fit for a club desperate to rebuild. .
Darren Bent thinks Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher would be “perfect” for Man United, adding the club shouldn’t feel under pressure to sign bigger names.
“Bringing together superstars sometimes just doesn’t fit. Sometimes it might be a lesser player, but their mentality is perfect,” Bent said on Drivetime.
“I heard about Conor Gallagher at United. His mentality, his dedication to football, his attitude, his hunger, he would be perfect.
“At the end of the day, he’s a very, very good footballer. He would be perfect for someone like Manchester United.
