Manchester United In Talks With Real Madrid For Casemiro
Premier League club Manchester United are on the verge of signing Brazilian international and Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro on a four-year contract, in a £60million (€70m) deal.
It has only taken three days of negotiations, with Casemiro cleared by the Spanish club to undergo a medical at Manchester United on Friday.
The four-year deal includes the option of a further 12 months, with the exact fee to be £50.7m plus £8.5m in add-ons. If the deal is completed on Friday, it is unlikely he will be available for Monday’s clash with Liverpool as he still requires a visa.
United are desperate for reinforcements after losing its opening two Premier League games under new boss Erik ten Hag. Manchester United have been in pursuit of Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong this off-season, but to no avail.
The Red Devils then switched their attention with links to Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot and now to another potential signing of Real Madrid midfield sensation Casemiro.
Manchester United have also had a £67.6m (€80m) bid for Ajax forward Antony rejected. United are weighing up whether to make an improved bid, but Ajax are understood to want to keep the Brazilian.
