Manchester United are monitoring yet another Atletico Madrid star, with The Mirror claiming that Jose Mourinho’s men are ready to make a move for Belgian winger Yannick Carrasco.

The Red Devils have been linked with the likes of Jose Gimenez, Diego Godin and Saul Niguez over recent months, but the latest report has another of Diego Simeone’s men touted as a possible transfer target for the Old Trafford side.

Carrasco burst onto the scene at Monaco and his pace, penetration and final product earned him a move to the Vicente Calderon.

While not all foreign players thrive under Simeone’s strict guidelines of what he expects from his squad, the versatile Belgian has played a part in Atletico’s continued success.

United have questions to answer in wide areas, with the likes of Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and others forced to play out of position on the flanks.

Carrasco would certainly add drive and purpose in the final third for the Premier League side but the Spaniards will surely demand a high price for their scintillating star.
