The Red Devils are on the verge of adding an experienced star to their midfield line.

Manchester United have reportedly reached an agreement for the transfer of Casemiro from Real Madrid.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted on Friday that the Brazilian star wants ‘a new challenge’, hinting a possible move could be imminent.

According to Sky Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, Man Utd will pay a fixed fee of €60m for Casemiro, with another €10m in add-ons.

Having won five Champions League titles, three La Liga trophies and a Copa del Ray cup with the Blancos, Casemiro will now reunite with his former teammates, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane, at Old Trafford.

The 30-year-old has reportedly agreed to join Man Utd on a four-year deal, which keeps him at the club until 2027.

Casemiro has played alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric as a cornerstone of Real Madrid’s midfield unit in recent seasons.

His departure will most likely provide more game time for Aurelien Tchouameni, who joined the Blancos on an €80m move earlier this summer.

Casemiro will become Man Utd’s fourth signing this summer, following the transfers of Tyler Malacia, Christian Eriksen, and Lisandro Martinez.

Let’s see if his move will end the Red Devils’ pursuit of Frenkie de Jong in the current transfer window.
