Casemiro leaves Real Madrid for Manchester United

Erik ten Hag will receive a big boost as a result of Carlo Ancelotti’s admission that Casemiro is joining Manchester United, which will help him move the team up the Premier League standings.

Following an initial €60 million fee agreement with Real Madrid, United is prepared to sign Casemiro as their fourth signing of the transfer window. The 30-year-old midfielder has also agreed to personally sign a four-year contract worth approximately £350,000 per week with the option of another 12 months.

After a challenging summer in the market that saw failed moves for Jurrien Timber, Marko Arnautovic, and Adrien Rabiot as well as a long-term pursuit of Frenkie de Jong stall with less than two weeks remaining before the 1 September deadline, the signing of the Brazil international will represent a victory for United.
Ancelotti, the Madrid coach, stated: “I spoke with Casemiro. He’s up for taking on a new task. We can appreciate his choice. It was only yesterday, on Thursday, that I realized it was true. Nothing will alter my plans. In terms of a replacement, we’ve hired [Aurélien] Tchouaméni, who is among the best on the market. Next, we have Eduardo Camavinga and Toni Kroos.

Casemiro’s medical and visa issues should be resolved this weekend, though the latter may take a few days as it did for Lisandro Martnez and Christian Eriksen, two of Ten Hag’s other additions. The fee also includes an additional €10 million in add-ons.

If the agreement is finalized as anticipated, Casemiro should enhance United’s midfield right away. Only Scott McTominay and Fred are the department’s regular front-line players, according to Ten Hag. Casemiro, who joined Real Madrid from So Paulo in 2013 and has won three La Liga crowns and five Champions Leagues with the Spanish side, will bring a winning mindset that has been demonstrated.

The Ajax attacker Antony is a target for Ten Hag as well. The Guardian understands the 22-year-old is dissatisfied with Ajax’s stance and is hoping a trade to United can still happen despite the Dutch club’s reluctance to sell. For the Brazilian to be added to another section of the team Ten Hag wants to bolster, a sum of £80 million or more might be necessary.

Ten Hag suggested Cody Gakpo of PSV as an option to Antony who is also located in the Netherlands and would be much less expensive.
