One of the more interesting stories to come out in recent times for Manchester United remains that of the Red Devils being interested in Dalian Yifang’s Yannick Carrasco.
Choosing to move to China at the age of 24 despite playing for Atlético Madrid at the time, the Belgian winger has, of late, been linked with a return to Europe, much like Axel Witsel did when he eventually transferred to Borussia Dortmund.
Manchester United and Arsenal were two of the clubs said to be linked with wanting to help him make his European comeback, which has since been confirmed by his wife, Noémie Happart.
Speaking to RTBF over the weekend, she said: “Many things are happening. He’s been called by a lot of clubs. Many are interested. Yannick has received offers from Germany, Spain, England and Italy, but nothing really concrete. Nothing has been signed.”
When pushed on whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current side were among those who came knocking, Happart revealed: “Yes, they’re very interested. I won’t hide it from you, but nothing has been signed. In fact, Yannick and his side are leaving tomorrow for a training camp in Spain.”
Carrasco’s wife also went onto explaining the winger’s situation, admitting that although her husband ‘felt good’ in China, it was far from everyone they know, with a ‘very different culture’.
This led to both of them being ‘interested’ in a return to Europe when aforementioned clubs made themselves known.
As for what happens next: “We’ll see how things go, how they pan out and who knows, maybe we’ll come back.”
