Manchester United have reached a £60m deal with Real Madrid for Casemiro, with a further £10m in add-ons.
The 30-year-old midfielder will sign a four-year contract with an option for a further year at Old Trafford.
Casemiro’s arrival is subject to a final determination of personal conditions, UK visa requirements and a medical assessment.
The Brazil international will nonetheless become Erik ten Hag’s fourth signing this summer after Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.
Casemiro will be among the top earners at Old Trafford once he joins the Ten Hag squad but his contract terms are said to be heavily merit-based.
While United have dismissed suggestions that he will double his salaries at Madrid, they will be significantly higher if he helps United qualify for the Champions League.
After winning five Champions League and three La Liga titles in his nine years with Madrid, Casemiro is said to be looking to test himself in a new environment in the Premier League.
