Carrasco’s agent discloses talks over swap deal with Barca forward Depay
Carrasco’s agent reveals talks over swap deal with Barca forward Depay.
Memphis Depay has been linked with Atletico Madrid and might be switched for Yannick Carrasco, according to the Belgian’s agent.
According to Yannick Carrasco’s agent, negotiations for a transfer in which Memphis Depay would leave Atletico Madrid and join Barcelona are already underway.
Depay is anticipated to depart Camp Nou this month, and the forward is thought to prefer a transfer to La Liga rivals Atleti.
The Netherlands international has spent the majority of this season as a substitute after Robert Lewandowski joined Barca.

Pini Zahavi, Carrasco’s representative, says there have been negotiations over a potential swap deal involving the Belgium winger and Depay.
He told Het Nieuwsblad: “We are talking. Yannick likes the idea, he is a good player.”

He added: “The plan is to change Yannick for Depay. There is still nothing concrete, I don’t know if it can work, but negotiations are under way.”
While Matheus Cunha moved to Wolves during the transfer window, Atleti already permitted Joao Felix to join Chelsea on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
