Casemiro’s decision on joining Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United revealed as Real Madrid wants €60M.
Brazilian international Casemiro, who plays for Real Madrid, decided to leave the team for Manchester United.
The Brazilian hasn’t ruled out moving to Manchester United, but would like to stay in Spain this summer, according to ESPN.
The Red Devils are considering a bold move for the Champions League victor since they are in dire need of midfield reinforcement.
The Brazilian international has established himself as one of the top midfielders in the world by forming a connection with players like Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in the Real Madrid midfield.
While the 30-year-old would prefer to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu, joining the Red Devils is a possibility as United are reportedly exploring a £50 million offer, according to ESPN.
It appears that Real Madrid has already signed two of the top young midfielders in European football as Casemiro’s replacements.
In the Spanish city, Carlo Ancelotti’s team already includes players like Aurelien Tchouameni and his countryman Eduardo Camavinga.
Casemiro sat on the sidelines as the two Frenchmen started Sunday’s season-opening match between Real Madrid and Almeria.
United is also thinking about signing Moises Caicedo from Brighton in addition to Casemiro.
