Barcelona have been asked to pay a fee of €60M if they are going to sign Belgian attacker Yarnick Carrasco from Athletico Madrid as the Winger is considered an integral part of their squad.

According to journalist Toni Juanmarti, Atletico Madrid have placed a €60 million valuation on winger Yannick Carrasco, who has emerged as a transfer target for Barcelona.

The Blaugrana are reportedly seeking Carrasco as part of a swap deal that would see Memphis Depay move to Atletico Madrid. However, the Rojiblancos are not willing to let Carrasco leave for nothing, as they see him as a key part of Diego Simeone’s plans and believe he is better than recent Barcelona acquisitions Raphinha and Ferran Torres.

Atletico Madrid are also unwilling to pay any fee for Depay, given that his contract expires at the end of the season. This has led to the possibility of a deal diminishing rapidly, and Atletico Madrid are reportedly prepared to wait until the summer to sign Depay rather than paying anything now.

They have also identified SC Braga’s Vitinha as a possible alternative for a loan deal if the Depay move does not materialize.
