Manchester United target Casemiro has opted to pursue a move to the Red Devils over the next few days after holding a meeting with real Madrid chiefs regarding the potential change, according to reports. United have reportedly stepped up their pursuit of Casemiro after they failed to sign Adrien Rabiot, who was recently in talks with the club but is unlikely to join Erik ten Hag’s side due to his exorbitant salary demands.
Casemiro has since become a top target for United, who have been desperately trying to land a new first-choice midfielder throughout the summer transfer window, but so far to no avail.
The Brazilian playmaker has now decided he would like a move to Old Trafford, with a formal agreement between all parties believed to be closer than ever, according to The Chiringuito.
Meanwhile, ESPN report that Casemiro recently met with the Real Madrid hierarchy to discuss the possibility of a move to United, while further talks with Carlo Ancelotti are urgently planned.
The player was initially unsure about linking up with Ten Hag and his players at Manchester but has reportedly warmed to the idea over the past few days due to the wages on offer and is now set to join United after having received a first proposal from the club earlier this week.
Ancelotti’s admiration for the player could, however, cause problems when it comes to United’s hopes of signing him over the next few days. The Real Madrid boss has previously insisted that Casemiro is a one-of-a-kind player who would be difficult to replace, suggesting he could attempt to land a blow for United despite the midfielder’s desire to replace them. join before. next month’s transfer deadline.
“If we look [in the market] for a copy of Casemiro we will make a mistake,” Ancelotti told reporters earlier this year.
“There is none in world football, he is unique. But other players can play as a pivot. [Eduardo] Camavinga played there, which has other characteristics. He carries the ball well but he doesn’t have the tactical ability of Casemiro, I’ve never had a pivot like him.”
