Casemiro considering Manchester United offer as his salary will double – report
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.

Atletico Madrid ‘approach’ Real Madrid, Arsenal midfield target over summer move
According to AS, Atletico Madrid have made the first approach for Celta Vigo midfielder Gabri Veiga, who has also been linked heavily with a move to Real Madrid and Arsenal.
The 20-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of the most exciting young prospects in Spanish football this season, having already netted nine goals in La Liga.
It has alerted a series of top-level clubs, with the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid all being linked with the youngster, who has a €40 million release clause in his contract with Celta.
Real Madrid are in the market for midfield reinforcements and have identified Jude Bellingham as their top target, but Veiga is also said to be on the agenda at the Santiago Bernabeu
However, recently, the Galician club’s president confirmed that there had been contact from clubs in England, but stated that Real Madrid had made no approach.
On top of that, a report from MARCA quoted a club source saying that they were not contemplating signing the 20-year-old.
Amidst this, it has now emerged that Atletico Madrid have made an approach towards signing Veiga from Celta Vigo in the summer transfer window.
The Rojiblancos are also in the market for new midfielders amid question marks over the futures of Saul Niguez and Geoffrey Kondogbia.
While Diego Simeone’s side have taken a first step, the report indicates that Veiga, in case of the absence of interest from Real Madrid, would prefer to join Arsenal.
So, the Colchoneros will need to put in efforts to convince the 20-year-old to choose them over a move to the Premier League club come summer if they are serious about adding the talented youngster to their roster for next season.
