In order to bolster their midfield, Man Utd was adamant about pursuing Casemiro, and Real Madrid only decided to let the Brazilian midfielder leave for 70 million euros.
According to Spanish journalist Sergio Santos, Manchester United is willing to pay €80 million to acquire the services of Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro.
The transfer window has reached a desperate stage for the Red Devils, and it appears that they are considering a number of targets to improve the first-team roster.
Casemiro was the subject of a shocking United bid on Tuesday, and it is now being said that they are adamant on getting him from the European champions.
The Brazilian international is available for purchase, and the Red Devils are willing to spend €80 million for him as well as treble his current salary.
Casemiro is reportedly considering the transfer because he is unhappy with some of Los Blancos’ choices.
Man Utd might have to pay more for Casemiro
Even at the age of 30, Casemiro is still among the top holding midfielders in the world of football.
Madrid is unlikely to approve his departure with just over two weeks left in the transfer window unless they receive a significant offer.
It was rumored earlier in the day that United was considering a proposal of €59 million, but it won’t surprise us if Madrid has their sights set on €80 million.
Although the price is excessive, United will receive a midfielder who performed admirably as Madrid’s lone number 6.
He made 1.8 clearances, won nearly three aerial duels, and won 2.5 tackles and 1.2 interceptions per game in the previous La Liga season.
In addition, 86% of his passes were completed. The Brazilian would be a superb signing for United because he has virtually no faults.
Aurelien Tchouameni, who was recently acquired by Madrid from AS Monaco, and Eduardo Camavinga, who was only acquired from Rennes one year ago, respectively.
Both are defensive midfielders, and Casemiro might be tempted to leave Madrid for United if he doesn’t have a bright future there.
