According to Sergio Santos of Relevo, Manchester United are determined to complete a Casemiro move from Real Madrid to Carrington. The Old Trafford club are looking to do the deal as soon as feasibly possible in order to register the Brazilian in time for the showdown against Liverpool.

All About the Potential Casemiro Move to Manchester United

How Much Could the Casemiro Move Cost?

The Red Devils are willing to pay Real Madrid around £67.5 million for the Brazilian midfielder. The 30-year-old is a strong defensive midfielder, and this is a speciality that the Manchester side has been missing for years now. This fee comes to more than the anticipated £50 million at the start of the saga. However, this is still a reasonable price for a world-class midfielder in his prime.

Do Real Madrid Want to Sell?

Whilst Los Blancos do not necessarily want to sell, Arancha Rodriguez states that “the ball is in the player’s court”. Casemiro is a significant part of the Real Madrid squad. However, the purchase of Aurelien Tchouameni in the most recent window could indicate the end of the experienced midfielder’s tenure at the Bernabeu. Manchester United’s potential newest recruit only saw minutes off the bench in the season opener.

What Will Casemiro Earn?

Sources including the aforementioned Arancha Rodriguez and Sergio Santos agree that the deal on the table for Casemiro is huge. The player can expect to double his wage at Old Trafford, pushing the player’s earnings up to around £368,000 per week (his current salary is £184,000 per week). As a club that generates some of the highest revenues in world football, Manchester United have the capacity to tempt the Brazil international with insane wages.

Does Casemiro Want a Move?

According to Jason Burt of The Telegraph, Casemiro “might be willing to accept a new challenge”. The midfield destroyer has won it all in Spain, with several Champions Leagues to his name, as well as multiple La Liga and Copa Del Rey victories. Having played alongside Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo before, the Brazilian could integrate well with the squad.
