Yannick Carrasco on his way back to Atlético Madrid

Yannick Carrasco will rejoin Atlético Madrid on loan until the end of the season from Chinese club Dalian Professional FC, according to Madrid-based journalist Patricia Cazón. The Belgian international is currently in Madrid to undergo a medical and is expected to sign before the end of the transfer deadline today.

Carrasco moved to China from Atlético in February 2018 after making 124 appearances for Los Rojiblancos. Crystal Palace are reported to have shown interest in signing the winger. Diego Simeone is in need of a creative spark for his side who face Liverpool in the Champions League next month; Carrasco scored 23 times and assisted on 17 occasions in his first stint at the club. Time will tell if he’ll reignite a spark second time round.
