Atlético Madrid's Yannick Carrasco is attracting admiring glances from a number of clubs across the continent in the wake of his displays for Los Rojiblancos.

City, United and PSG circling

Carrasco, 23, has impressed for Atlético since signing in 2015, and on Saturday was in top form as he grabbed a hat-trick in a 7-1 LaLiga win over strugglers Granada.

And several UK media outlets say Manchester United and Manchester City are chasing the Belgium cap and would be ready to pay his 40m-euro release clause.

Carrasco hit a hat-trick for Atlético at the weekend.

Atleti out to raise release clause

Atlético are currently seeking to renew Carrasco's contract and significantly up his buy-out figure, with Chelsea and Liverpool likewise keeping tabs on him.

In France, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are also being linked with Carrasco, who at the weekend insisted he's happy in the Spanish capital.

Although an initial attempt to increase Carrasco's release clause is thought to have been rebuffed, Atleti are said to be confident of tying him down with a pay rise.
