real Madrid midfielder Casemiro is expected to undergo a medical on Friday ahead of his scheduled transfer to Manchester United on a long-term deal, according to reports. The Red Devils are said to be in advanced talks with Real Madrid after they firmed up their interest in Casemiro’s services over the past few days and it looks like negotiations are progressing rapidly behind closed doors.
Casemiro reportedly informed Real Madrid of his desire to join United earlier on Thursday after becoming a priority target for Erik ten Hag, who appears to have missed out on signings Frenkie de Jong and Adrien Rabiot in recent weeks. United are apparently making a lot of progress in talks with Los Blancos over a move for Casemiro, who will undergo a medical on Friday and could even play in Monday’s crucial Premier League game against Liverpool, according to Mark.
Casemiro is said to have been pondering a lucrative offer from United for three days but has finally warmed to the idea of swapping Madrid for Manchester, with personal terms now agreed between the player and the club. The Red Devils have also agreed a transfer fee of around £59million in talks with Real Madrid, who don’t plan to stand in the way of Casemiro despite still being linked until the summer. 2025 as it stands.
United’s offer is expected to significantly increase the Brazilian playmaker’s current salary, but other reports claiming his salary will be doubled are said to be far from accurate. A “long and complicated” day of discussing the finer details of the move is set to unfold on Friday before Casemiro can be officially unveiled as United’s new player in due course.
His arrival at Old Trafford would certainly solve one of the many problems Ten Hag has been facing this season, with the Dutchman eager to sign a new midfielder since taking over from United earlier this summer. United were previously frustrated in their bid to sign Barcelona midfielder De Jong, whom the Catalan giants tried to sell in order to balance the books, before pulling out of a move for Rabiot earlier this month on the Frenchman’s lucrative salary expectations.
It remains to be seen whether Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti’s stance on Casemiro’s future will put a damper on United, with the Italian manager known to be a huge admirer of the player. It is claimed that Ancelotti is still hoping for one last chance to convince Casemiro to stay at the Bernabeu this summer, although his United move plans are likely to be officially confirmed in the coming days.

“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.”
