Real Madrid star Casemiro is keen on a move to United, with the Premier League giants turning to the 30-year-old after chasing De Jong all summer. It’s said that a deal worth an initial 60million euros (£50.7m) is close for the Brazil international.
Casemiro – a former team-mate of Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane in Spain – is a five-time Champions League winner with Madrid, who he joined from Sao Paulo in his homeland in 2013. He is one of the best midfielders in the world and he rarely gets injured, which is something we need to focus on because Rafael Varane, who joined from Madrid a year ago, has struggled to stay fit.
Report believes Casemiro will travel to England next week and then Manchester United, which means we might become more solid in midfield. It’s been needed for years.
However, Spanish newspaper Marca says the Real Madrid No.14 could undergo a medical at Manchester United tomorrow.
The report claimed Casemiro had accepted Old Trafford as his next destination, adding: “Casemiro will undergo a medical at Manchester United tomorrow.”
In addition, famous Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano says United were positive about a deal before Friday, with director of football John Mertoff discussing the matter.
