Manchester United finalise deal to sign Casemiro


Manchester United close in on Casemiro as Antony bid rejected

Manchester United have reached an agreement to transfer Carlos Henrique Casimiro, known as Casemiro from the La Liga champions Real Madrid, the Premier League club said on Friday.

United said that the transfer is subject to the agreement of personal terms, British visa requirements and a medical.

The 30-year-old is set to sign a four-to-five-year deal at United with wages of around 16 million euros ($16.1 million) per year.

Meanwhile, British media said United had closed on a deal worth up to 70 million euros for Casemiro, who has 63 caps for Brazil.

Earlier, Real coach Carlo Ancelotti said Casemiro wanted to leave Real to face a “new challenge”.

“We understand his feelings. I do not think there is a way back,” Ancelotti told a news conference on Friday.

“Real Madrid lose a player that has linked really well with the other midfielders with more quality, (Luka) Modric and (Toni) Kroos. He is important and has been key to Madrid’s success,” Ancelotti said.

Casemiro’s addition will boost United’s options in midfield, with Ten Hag currently having only Fred and Scott McTominay as the regular players in that department.

After joining the Spanish giants in 2013 from Sao Paulo, Casemiro won five Champions League trophies, three La Liga titles, one Copa del Rey, and three Club World Cups among other honours.
