Atletico Madrid coach Simeone admits Carrasco on way to China; Torres next?

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has confirmed Yannick Carrasco is set to leave this week.

The Belgium winger is in talks to join a Chinese Premier League club, while Atletico teammate Fernando Torres is also being linked with a similar move.

Simeone commented: "I cannot say much about Carrasco because he is negotiating his situation, Fernando's thing I do not have notification, we all train well and when the market ends on the 28th we will consider what may happen.

"I never got into people's reasons (about moving to China). If it is economic growth it is already a personal choice. In football I am not surprised, we are tied to that possibility and these developments.

"I am worried because with all the money that goes around, beyond the choice of players, for coaches it is not comfortable because you think what can happen."
