Agent: ‘Carrasco will play in Italy’

Yannick Carrasco’s agent confirms he turned down a move to Napoli but “sooner or later he’ll play in Italy”.

The winger left Atletico Madrid in February to sign for Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang, but his representative believes he will play in Serie A one day.

“It’s useless to keep secrets in football, and it’s true there was interest from Napoli,” Christophe Henrotay admitted on Radio Marte.

“In the end he chose China though. I’m convinced that sooner or later he’ll play in Italy, because Serie A is destined to grow.

“I’m not basing that affirmation on hope alone, I have concrete reasons to believe Carrasco will play in Italy in the future.”
