The Brazil international is poised to maneuver to England in an enormous £60m deal, a fee that can make him the club’s fifth most-expensive signing after previous deals for the likes of Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire, Romelu Lukaku and Jadon Sancho.
United had, initially, been hoping to recruit Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona – with Ten Hag previously working with the Netherlands international at Ajax.
But with the 25-year-old reluctant to maneuver to Old Trafford, Casemiro has now been recruited as a substitute.
In addition to Carrasco, United even have interest in three other forwards as they give the impression of being to climb up the Premier League table following a nightmare begin to the season.
Antony stays their foremost goal, though Ajax have made it clear they won’t part ways with the Brazil international for anything lower than £80m.
Chelsea star Christian Pulisic is on the Red Devils’ radar, though it’s unclear if the Blues will allow the USA international to affix a direct rival.
