Next club?

In our view, Newcastle United could struggle to sign Yannick Carrasco from Atletico Madrid this summer, now that Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in him.

Now, of course, we know that Newcastle are an established club in the Premier League who have wealthy owners in PIF, but Chelsea and Tottenham will play in the UEFA Champions League next season and are massive global brands.

Carrasco made 28 starts and six substitute appearances in La Liga for Atletico last season, scoring six goals and providing six assists in the process.
