Diego Simeone has also looked to reduce rumours over Carrasco leaving Atletico.
La Blaugrana director of football Mateu Alemany has offered an update on the club’s interest in Atletico Madrid star Yannick Carrasco.
Barcelona have been linked with a move for the Belgian international as part of the deal which took Memphis Depay to Atletico.
Initial reports hinted at an agreement being in place, to give Spanish giants a purchase option on Carrasco this summer, after sanctioning Depay’s move to Madrid.
“Memphis’ transfer was a good operation for us. Xavi already said he’s happy with the squad and we’re calm over the market,” as per reports from Diario AS.
“We’ll see what happens, but, right now, the idea is to stay as we are, which is great news.
“The Carrasco thing is another element in a negotiation with Atletico, a good player, who in the future is interesting to us.”
Diego Simeone has also looked to reduce rumours over Carrasco leaving Atletico, certainly this month, and both clubs are expected to reopen talks in the summer.
Barcelona are unlikely to make any new signings in the winter window due to the ongoing financial pressure at Camp Nou.
