Report in Spain suggests United eye Carrasco as Antony alternative

Atletico Madrid forward Yannick Carrasco has been linked with a move to Manchester United as an alternative to Ajax winger Antony.

According to Fichajes, Manchester United have been dealt a blow as Antony seems increasingly unlikely to leave Ajax.

It is thought that personal terms would not be an issue if a deal could be struck between Ajax and United, as per the Manchester Evening News, but it sounds like the Brazil international is being priced out of a move this summer.

The report states that United have identified alternatives to Antony, including Belgium international Carrasco.

It remains to be seen how much Atletico Madrid would want in return for Carrasco, but Fichajes believe he has a £50m termination clause in his current deal.

Carrasco made 13 goal contributions in 44 appearances for Atleti last season.

I wouldn’t put my money on this one.
