Real Madrid’s transfer window could take a surprising turn after MARCA revealed that Manchester United are hoping to sign Casemiro.
The 30-year-old defensive midfielder is wanted by the struggling English giants after they gave up on their pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
Real Madrid came to know about the situation through Casemiro himself. Given the player’s good relationship with the club, he believed he had to be transparent with his situation.
Real Madrid are aware that the no.14 has received an offer with an offer that would see his salary almost double, which would be difficult to refuse.
However, given the crisis that the English giants are currently enduring, with a terrible start to the Premier League season and a season in Europa League instead of the Champions League ahead, it is surprising that the player is mulling over a transfer.
News very soon about Casemiro’s proposed Manchester United move
The Real Madrid board also knows that the Brazilian feels that he is approaching the end of his career. But he is not sure if he wants to call it a day in the Spanish capital, especially given the current state of affairs at United.
Los Blancos are bracing themselves for a first offer from Manchester United, expected to be around 60 million euros. Meanwhile, the player himself is loved at the club – in the dressing room, at board level, and by the supporters.
But strange things happen in football, and Casemiro might just leave Real Madrid before the window closes at the end of August.
