Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Casemiro asked to leave the club after would have agree personal terms with Manchester United. The Brazilian midfielder appears to have played his last game for Real ahead of a potential £60m move to the Premier League.
Casemiro is said to have agreed a four-year deal at United, with the option of a further year, with the Red Devils closing in on an initial £51m deal that could rise to £60m through add-ons. And now Ancelotti has admitted the 30-year-old wants to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.
Ahead of Real’s La Liga clash against Celta Vigo on Saturday, the Italian coach said: “We spoke this morning. He wants to try a new challenge, a new opportunity. I understand that; also, the club is doing it. finished for this club and for this team, we have to be respectful of that. There are negotiations between the clubs. He’s still a Real Madrid player, but now it looks like he’s ready to leave.”
When asked if he tried to convince Casemiro to snub a move to Old Trafford, Ancelotti replied: “No, I always talked to him a lot during my second spell at Real Madrid. I just listened to his desire. I think there is. That’s what he wants, and if the negotiations go well, we just have to wish him the best.
