Yannick Carrasco is firmly on Bayern Munich’s radar. The German champions would have to make a significant outlay to capture their man, with Atlético Madrid demanding €50m for their flying winger.

Ancelotti admires Carrasco

One of the main reasons for the interest is the presence of Carlo Ancelotti in the Bayern dugout. The Italian coach rates Carrasco highly, and needs to reinforce his attack. Alexis Sánchez was discussed as a possible arrival in Bavaria, yet the interest appears to have cooled, leaving Carrasco as the main target.

Bayern continue to eye up Atleti's Carrasco

The Belgian arrived in Madrid from Monaco in 2015, and has a contract at Atlético until 2022. After three fine seasons at the Calderón, Carrasco could now move on. His discontent at the end of the season was clear, following disagreements with Diego Simeone’s coaching staff. Carrasco was also unhappy with where he was being played, and with his regular substitution, for example in the clash against Alavés at Mendizorroza.

Atlético transfer ban could cause problems

Atlético Madrid’s transfer ban could be an obstacle. Los Rojiblancos cannot to sign players until the January transfer market and, as such, would be unable to reinforce the squad to compensate for Carrasco’s departure.
