Casemiro agrees to join Manchester United and they are willing to pay £67 million for Casemiro and DOUBLE his wages to scary numbers.
Casemiro’s earnings would also allegedly double as Manchester United is willing to pay £67 million for the Real Madrid midfielder.
Due to Adrien Rabiot’s wage demands, the Red Devils decided against signing the Juventus star.
The team has since turned its focus to other players, and its “dream signing” is Casemiro, a pillar of Los Blancos and one of the finest in the world at his position.
Relevo, a Spanish news outlet, reports that United is committed to signing the Brazil international and has put up a strong financial package.
Real is believed to have a sufficient fee of £67 million, but the most important aspect is the pay.
At the Santiago Bernabeu, Casemiro makes about £184,000 per week, and United is willing to pay him twice as much.
The 30-year-old would make £368,000 each week, ranking third in earnings behind Cristiano Ronaldo and goalkeeper David de Gea.
A deal can be done, according to the Old Trafford management, as Casemiro is “annoyed” by a few Real decisions.
In place of him, boss Carlo Ancelotti started summer acquisition Aurelien Tchouameni as the deepest midfielder in Sunday’s 2-1 victory over Almeria.
Ancelotti, according to Fabrizio Romano, will be crucial in Casemiro’s decision-making process.
He joined Real in 2013 and has had an incredibly successful nine years, winning five Champions League wins and three La Liga championships.
‘Don Carlo’ is a tremendous admirer of Casemiro and gushed over him in January.
According to Diario AS, Ancelotti said, “If we are going to hunt [in the market] for a duplicate of Casemiro, we’ll make a mistake.” “There are none in football worldwide. He is special.
“However, other players may function as a pivot. There, [Eduardo] Camavinga, who possesses other qualities, played.
“He moves the ball well, but he lacks Casemiro’s tactical awareness. He was the first pivot I’ve ever had. At Milan, I had [Andrea] Pirlo, who had different qualities. You must adjust to the situation at hand.”
Under the leadership of new manager Erik ten Hag, United have recruited Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, and Lisandro Martinez to their roster, although ten Hag is still in dire need of a “elite” holding player.
United, who are currently last in the Premier League after consecutive losses to Brentford and Brighton, are back in action on Monday when they take on fierce rivals Liverpool.
