Atletico Madrid have re-signed Belgium winger Yannick Carrasco two years after he left for Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang.

Carrasco, 26, returns on loan until the end of the season to Atletico, where he scored 23 goals in 124 games.

He was at the club between 2015-2018 and scored in the 2016 Champions League final against Real Madrid.
