Manchester United finalize deal with Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro


Manchester United are nearing the big-money signing of Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro, the PA news agency understands.

Erik ten Hag’s side have been looking to bolster their midfield all summer and an initial €60m (£50.7m) deal for the Brazil international is on the horizon.

Casemiro’s fee could rise to €70m (£59.2m) if the clauses are met, with a four-year deal plus the option of one more season on the table.

Talk of a medical on Friday seems premature, meaning he would not be registered in time for Monday’s clash with rivals Liverpool.

United are bottom of the Premier League after a 2-1 home defeat by Brighton was compounded by last weekend’s 4-0 win at Brentford.

The Old Trafford giants have been working feverishly to strengthen Ten Hag’s squad, having so far only managed to bring in Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.

Casemiro – a former teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane in Spain – is a five-time Champions League winner with Madrid, who he joined in his home country from Sao Paulo in 2013.

More irons are in the fire as United look to kickstart their ailing campaign at a time of intense pressure on the Glazer family.

Anti-owner protests are planned ahead of and during Monday’s clash with Liverpool and Sir Jim Ratcliffe has publicly expressed his interest in buying the club. Manchester United finalize deal with Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro
