Manchester United seal transfer deal for Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro

Manchester United and Real Madrid have reached an agreement to sign Brazil’s Casemiro, according to the English Premier League side.

According to British media, United will pay Madrid $60 million upfront and $10 million in add-ons.

“Manchester United is thrilled to announce that we have reached an agreement with Real Madrid regarding the transfer of Casemiro,” said the club in a statement. The transfer is subjected to personal terms, UK visa requirements, and medical.

“Casemiro played more than 500 professional games, with 63 of them at the international level in his native Brazil.” The statement said that he has been awarded 17 major honors during his distinguished career, including five Champions League titles as well as the Copa America.

“We look forward to welcoming Casemiro at Old Trafford.”

This news comes on the heels of comments by Carlo Ancelotti (real manager), who said that Casemiro had previously expressed his desire to leave Real. Ancelotti stated that he wanted to accept a new challenge and the club understood.

Ancelotti stated at the time that negotiations were continuing.
After Los Blancos’ Super Cup win against Eintracht Frankfurt, Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid coach, speaks to Casemiro. Since joining Real Madrid in 2013, the Brazil international has won three La Liga titles as well as five UEFA Champions Leagues.

The 30-year-old has played 222 games for Los Blancos and scored 24 goals. His current contract is valid until June 2025. Erik ten Hag would be the fourth manager of Manchester United with this defensive midfielder. The club had already signed Christian Eriksen, Christian Malacia, and Lisandro Martinez.
United is currently at the bottom of the Premier League after a difficult start to the season, with two consecutive defeats in its first two matches. United lost 4-0 at Brentford last Saturday. Ten Hag stated that his team’s plan had been “thrown out the window.”
“They (the players), make bad decisions, and that is football. “It’s a game where mistakes are made and we get punished,” said ten Hag afterward. “It’s foolish how we played today. You need to be more direct. We attracted them, space was high on their pitch… We will learn. It’s not worth it, it’s very clear at this level.
