Man Utd ready to sign top Arsenal target for Solskjaer

Manchester United are interested in adding a new lease of life to their attack following reports linking them to Yannick Carrasco.

United’s manager is reportedly keen to add the 25-year-old Belgian to his attacking options in order to give them a chance to qualify for next season’ Champions League given that the league is ever more competitive.

After surprisingly joining China last season for £26.5million, the former Genk and Atletico Madrid man desires to return to Europe to enhance his career.

Arsenal, alongside Manchester United are vying for his signature even though the Gunners were previously thought to be the players next destination.

Carrasco is experienced given that he was a regular for his country during the 2016 European Championship and he also featured four times in the last World Cup hosted by Russia.

Whichever club is willing to sign Carrasco from Dalian Yifang in Chinese Super League, the player must be willing to negotiate a reduction in his £173,000-a-week wages with his contract set to expire in 2021.

The speedy winger is at his peak and any club that takes the risk to sign him will be getting a player who can play well in the attacking third and also has in his kitty the ability to strike the ball with both feet.

United will need such a player to give them width especially against opposition with compact defensive unit.
