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.
