Manchester United’s pursuit of Adrien Rabiot came to an end in the last few days due to salary demands of the Frenchman. Consequently, they shifted their attention towards Real Madrid mainstay, Casemiro.

What was initially labeled as laughable rumours are on the pricipice of becoming a lot more. According to a bombsheel report, relayed by GOAL, Casemiro is, in fact, considering a move to Old Trafford.

The report claims that Casemiro has not closed the door on a departure from Madrid this summer, contrary to reports. While the absence of the Champions League is a huge factor, United’s offer is very interesting for him.

He has received offers from various teams this summer, especially after Real Madrid brought in Aurelien Tchouameni to compete with him for the defensive midfield position, but none more fascinating than United.

The report also claims that the Red Devils are willing to shell out nearly €80 million for his services, and on a more personal level, his salary will double.

€80 million is a bucketload of money for a player on the last juncture of his career, but Madrid are not in need of extra cash. They might, however, need Casemiro next season, as they look to defend their Champions League and La Liga crown.

Speaking in a recent interview with Fichajes.com (h/t GOAL), former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has heaped praise on Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni, while also revealing that he recommended the Catalans to sign him in the past.

Tchouameni arrived at Real Madrid this past summer in a deal worth €80 million plus €20 million in add-ons. Following Casemiro’s departure, he was thrust into the limelight right away by Carlo Ancelotti and the 22-year-old has not put a foot wrong since arriving.

Indeed, Tchouameni has become a key player for Ancelotti’s side and is currently starring at the FIFA World Cup 2022 with France.

Now, Fabregas, who had played with Tchouameni at AS Monaco in the past, has hailed the youngster, stating that there are no limits to what he can achieve.

During the chat, he also revealed that he had recommended Tchouameni’s signing to Barcelona but finances prohibited any move from happening.

“Yes, it’s true that I spoke to Barça about Aurelién. They wanted to start preparing the succession of Sergio Busquets and for me he was the perfect player. It was at a time when Barça were short of money and I don’t think they could offer more than €40 million,” he said.

“Then he signed for Real Madrid, he’s a permanent fixture there and he’s essential in the French national team. For me, Aurélien has no limits.”

Opening up on the first time he saw Tchouameni in action, Fabregas added: “I quickly realised he was not a player like the others. The first time I saw him was during a Ligue 1 match against Bordeaux with Monaco.

“I was on the bench and I was impressed with his performance. They beat us and I remember asking one of our assistants: “but who is this Bordeaux midfielder?”, he reminisced.

Fabregas also revealed that he was close with Tchouameni and the youngster sought advice from the former Arsenal captain, saying:

“I spoke a lot with Aurélien, we exchanged a lot of opinions, even when he came to the France national team. He asked me for a lot of advice about my career at clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, and FC Barcelona,” he said.
