Three-time European champions Manchester United have turned their attention to the Chinese Super League in the quest to strengthen their squad this January transfer window.
According to the report from Foot Mercato via the Daily Mirror, the Red Devils are plotting a move for Belgian international winger Yannick-Ferreira Carrasco who plays for Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has around £50m to spend on transfers and some of it could be utilised in the transfer for the aforementioned Carrasco though his wages could be a stumbling block to a transfer.
He earns around £170,000 on a weekly basis in China.
Yannick Carrasco was recently part of the Belgium that finished third under manager Roberto Martinez at the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
It was the best World Cup outing by the Red Devils of Belgium after it beat the period record of the fourth spot set at the 1986 edition.
Yannick Carrasco left Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid for China last year January and he’s said to be fed up with life in the Asian country.
The Belgian attacker is keen to come back to Europe and a transfer to Manchester United could be what he needs to kick-start his football career.
