United-linked Carrasco confirms Prem interest in January, Europe return still on cards
- The Belgian remains linked with United & Arsenal.
- Carrasco confirms interest from North London in January.
- The 25-year-old still wants to return to Europe from Chinese league to re-unite with his family.
Yannick Carrasco was heavily linked with Man United and Arsenal during the winter transfer window. The player left Atletico Madrid to join Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang in February 2018 and now wants to return to Europe.
"There was interest from Arsenal and I had a lot of teams in January giving me the chance to go back to Europe, but here the president said it was difficult to go then," the 25-year-old told The Sun. "Maybe this summer it is possible. If it is a good thing and I want to go, maybe I can speak with the president.
"I try to do my best because I am a professional for my team after we can think about a solution. If I have a lot of teams who want me but the president decides I have to stay, I cannot do anything.
"All that you want is to be close to your family, and to go back to Europe is a good solution. I’m OK here, the club is good with me, the players and fans also are nice with me. But you know, when you are far from your family, and I think I can do good things in the European game, I am thinking it’s a solution if I can go back.”
Carrasco's current deal at Dalian Yifangruns out in January 2022 and he is valued at €20 million by Transfermarkt now.
