Manchester United linked with Atletico Madrid forward Yannick Carrasco but told to sign Chelsea man Conor Gallagher, who would be ‘perfect fit’, says Darren Bent

Yannick Carrasco has become the third Atletico Madrid player to be linked with Manchester United this week.

It’s been reported the Red Devils are plotting an ambitious bid to sign Atleti forward Joao Felix, however, that move appears to be very unlikely to happen.

Their move for Brazilian forward Mathues Cunha, who also pleads his trade with the LaLiga side, appears more likely with Man United closing in on a £42 million deal for him.

And the Daily Telegraph reports Carrasco, who’s understood to be valued at £25million, is on Erik ten Hag’s list of potential targets before deadline day on September 1.

Although they’ve signed the likes of Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen this summer, it’s been a very frustrating transfer window for Man United.

There may be one or two question marks about whether signing Carrasco, who left Atleti in 2018 to spend two years with Chinese club Dalian Professional, would be the right fit for a club desperately looking to rebuild.

Darren Bent believes Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher would be ‘perfect’ for Man United, adding the club shouldn’t feel under pressure to sign bigger names.

“Putting superstars together at times just doesn’t fit. Sometimes it may be a lesser player but their mentality is spot-on,” Bent said on Drivetime.

“I heard talk about Conor Gallagher at United. His mentality, his dedication to playing football, his attitude, his hunger, he would be perfect.

“At the end of that he’s a very, very good footballer. He’d be perfect for someone like Manchester United.”
