Manchester United’s search for a quality midfielder moved from Barcelona to Real Madrid earlier this week. The English giants were initially interested in Frenkie de Jong but turned their eyes to Casemiro after the Dutchman rejected their approach.

According to reports from COPE, the Brazilian midfielder has no intention of leaving Real Madrid and is not even considering a move away from the Bernabeu.

The Red Devils were willing to double the veteran’s wages which would come to a figure of €430,000 per week. The economic pull, however, was not sufficient to change his mind.

This is not surprising considering the poor management and performance of Manchester United this season. Moreover, Casemiro continues to be a regular starter under Carlo Ancelotti and has no reason to look for a future away from the club.

The arrival of Aurelien Tchouameni signals competition for the defensive midfield position. However, it is natural for the club to be concerned about the future, especially given that Casemiro is now 30 years of age.

The Brazilian started the game against Eintracht Frankfurt last week and helped his side to a 2-0 win. It was his assist to David Alaba that opened the scoring on the night.

Last season, he made 31 La Liga starts for Real Madrid, scoring one goal and providing three assists. He also started every UEFA Champions League clash for his side and over 13 defensive actions per game.

Casemiro’s contract with Real Madrid does not expire until the summer of 2025. Given that the player will be close to 33 years then, it remains to be seen if his performances warrant an extension at that point in time.

Real Madrid will be aiming to continue their recent winning streak when they take on third-placed Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday.

Los Blancos have picked up three wins in three games against Villarreal, Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid. Given that Barcelona already have a lead at the top of the table, Carlo Ancelotti’s men cannot afford any slip-up against Sociedad tomorrow.

Ahead of the much-anticipated contest at the Santiago Bernabeu, manager Ancelotti has announced the Real Madrid squad list for the game.

Dani Carvajal, who trained normally today, is still not back on the roster, with Ancelotti already admitting that the Spaniard could return against Valencia next week.

Meanwhile, David Alaba, Aurelien Tchouameni and Lucas Vazquez also remain unavailable while Ferland Mendy misses out after picking up a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid.

Rodrygo Goes, who also sustained a knock in the game against Atletico, is fully fit and on the squad list for the Real Sociedad encounter. Eden Hazard is also back after missing the last two matches with an injury.

Castilla midfielder Mario Martin, who made his senior debut against the Rojiblancos is retained on the list by Ancelotti.
