The value of Carrasco

Ehe red-and-white fan has become accustomed to experiencing transfer periods with a certain fear. Without going too far, last January rumors of a possible departure of Yannick Carrasco were unleashed. The Belgian then made it clear that he wanted to continue at Atlético. A relief for all, Simeone the first. Carrasco is a key piece for the Argentine and he was not willing to lose her.

It was precisely in the winter market of the 19/20 season, a few months before the pandemic arrived, when Yannick returned to Atlético. After almost a month of hiatus in the Chinese league, the Belgian international returned to the Metropolitano the day the market closed. While everyone was waiting for the arrival of a striker (Cavani was in all the pools), the signing that arrived was that of the Belgian. A guy who returned to Atlético after passing through China.

That first half season was not easy for him. In the first month and a half, just before the world stopped, Carrasco had a hard time getting into the dynamics of the team. The break was good for him to return in June with a version closer to the one we had all known before his adventure in China. His last two courses are an example of what he can offer Atlético and Cholo.

Although last season his offensive numbers were lower than the previous one when he won the league title, his weight in the team was much higher. With 44 games (3,336′) behind him, Yannick became the second outfield player with the most minutes on the pitch, only surpassed by Koke. 37 games as a starter make clear the importance of the Belgian who only saw his presence in the eleven decrease with the arrival of the Champions League qualifiers when he was suspended. To his six goals and seven assists we must add his multipurposesomething that Simeone considers fundamental.

Coveted piece in the market

All these numbers did not go unnoticed by the rest of the clubs that have Carrasco in their sights. At the moment, without any offer, the Belgian awaits a salary increase that places him among the best paid footballers on the team. Something that has been gained in these two seasons with his work. Simeone is clear that Yannick is a fundamental piece for the team and the Belgian has made it clear on numerous occasions that he is happy at Atlético after his return. Of course, he considers it fair that his value on the field is reflected off it.
