Atletico Madrid Star Set To Join Chinese Club

Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Carrasco is set to join Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang in a £26million deal.

Ahead of the Chinese season commencing in March, clubs have until February 28 to secure signings for the upcoming campaign with newly-promoted Dalian Yifang showing their intent with the flying winger.

The 24-year-old will become the second Belgian international to swap European football for China after midfielder Axel Witsel joined Tianjin Quanjian in January 2017.

The Chinese club are believed to be weighing up a double scoop from the club with team-mate Fernando Torres, who boss Diego Simeone confirmed is available to leave, also of interest.

Carrasco was left out of the 19-man squad for Thursday’s Europa League second leg against FC Copenhagen to all-but-confirm his pending departure from Madrid.

Former Monaco attacker Carrasco has previously been linked with Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United but his latest move is further proof of a stuttering career.
