When asked by Football Insider if Carrasco would be a welcome addition at Old Trafford for £25million, Campbell said: “That is cheap money.

“That is very cheap money because Carrasco is a brilliant player.

“I thought United looked excellent the other night, especially going forward. Erik ten Hag selected a side with great running power. Liverpool played into their hands which ain’t like Liverpool.

“If you bring a Carrasco in for £25million, that would be sensible business.


“I watched him for a couple of seasons when I was working on La Liga and he was very good. He is very dangerous. He is a goal threat.”

Carrasco has made 221 appearances for Atletico Madrid.

He has contributed 37 goals and 39 assists in those outings.
