With the acquisition of Casemiro, Man United made significant progress

Real Madrid agreed to sell Casemiro to MU for a fee of 60 million pounds, after a breakthrough on the negotiating table yesterday.

The 30-year-old Brazilian midfielder is anticipated to go to Manchester this weekend to undergo a medical examination before agreeing to a 4-year deal with a 12-month option.

At the Santiago Bernabeu, Casemiro will make £350,000 a week, almost double what he does now.


After Cristiano Ronaldo (£480,000/week) and David de Gea (£375,000/week), Casemiro would earn the third-highest salary at Manchester United if he were to join Old Trafford.

After receiving the go-ahead from club president Florentino Perez, Casemiro met with coach Ancelotti face-to-face on Wednesday night to explain his intention to go.

Ancelotti has always appreciated the influence of the Brazilian midfielder, with the role of clearing and intercepting in midfield, making a great contribution to helping Los Blancos win 18 titles in the past 9 years.


However, at the age of 30, Casemiro wants to find a new challenge in the Premier League environment and also earn a handsome contract before retiring.

The current contract between Casemiro and Real Madrid is still valid for 3 years, but his position is being threatened by rookie Aurelien Tchouameni.


The MU team traveled to Madrid to negotiate at the beginning of the week and immediately came to terms with the Royal club on a transfer fee of 60 million pounds.

The Red Devils representative is hopeful that Casemiro’s paperwork will be finished quickly so that he can be registered for the thrilling game against Liverpool early next week (August 22).


Coach Ten Hag thinks that Casemiro’s level and experience will be beneficial to MU despite the fact that he is not a commanding midfielder and can pull the ball like Frenkie de Jong.

On the Brazilian team, when Casemiro kicks at the bottom of midfield, Fred often plays very flying in the role of shuttle midfielder.

In addition to Casemiro, in the closing days of the transfer window, MU also wants to bring in a striker, a right-back and a backup goalkeeper.
