Man Utd determined to pursue Casemiro to strengthen the midfield and Real Madrid only agreed to let the Brazilian midfielder leave for 70 million euros.
Carlo Ancelotti said back in July that “the market is closed for us.” The Italian appeared assured that Real Madrid wouldn’t add any more players this summer, but he presumably wasn’t planning on losing one of his stars.
The Casemiro transaction was negotiated in Madrid with the presence of a Man Utd board member. Real Madrid was willing to let Casemiro depart if the price was right and did not reject the “Red Devils” either.
Marca claims that Real Madrid is willing to allow Casemiro to join Manchester United in exchange for 70 million euros. For a midfielder who is older than 30, this is a really expensive price.
For 6 million euros, Casemiro moved from Sao Paolo to Real Madrid in 2013. He won 5 Champions League titles and advanced to the level of a premier midfielder throughout his nine years with Real Madrid.
Casemiro wants to compete in the Premier League, and Manchester United is the best place for him to do it. Even though Casemiro is a key component of Real Madrid’s midfield, the club is not going all out to keep him.
Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni, two of the most talented midfielders in Europe right now, are under coach Ancelotti’s ownership. Tchouameni performed admirably in the middle of the field during the victory over Almeria on the first day of La Liga, with a pass accuracy percentage of 96%.
Man Utd chose to pursue Casemiro after attempting to get Frenkie de Jong and Adrien Rabiot but failing. When the “Red Devils”‘ faces of Scott McTominay and Fred cause significant disappointment, the Brazilian midfielder vows to reinforce the midfield for the team.
Casemiro will reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo and Varane, two of his old Real Madrid teammates, if he plays at Old Trafford. Man Utd is prepared to treble Casemiro’s pay as restitution for their failure to qualify for the Champions League.
