Manchester United goal Casemiro has opted to pursue a move to the Red Devils over the approaching days after holding a gathering with Real Madrid chiefs regarding the potential switch, based on reports. United are said to have stepped up their pursuit of Casemiro after missing out on the signing of Adrien Rabiot, who was recently in talks with the club but shouldn’t be expected to affix Erik ten Hag’s squad because of this of his exorbitant wage demands.
Casemiro has since emerged as a top goal for United, who’ve been desperately attempting to land a recent first-choice holding midfielder throughout the summer transfer window but to no avail as of yet.
The Brazilian playmaker has now decided that he would love to make the move to Old Trafford, with a proper agreement between all parties understood to be closer than ever, based on El Chiringuito.
Meanwhile, ESPN are reporting that Casemiro recently met with Real Madrid’s hierarchy to debate the potential of a move to United, while further talks with Carlo Ancelotti have been scheduled as a matter of urgency.
The player was initially unsure about linking up with Ten Hag and his players in Manchester but is alleged to have warmed to the thought over the previous few days as a result of the wages on offer and is now prepared to affix United after receiving an initial proposal from the club earlier this week.

Ancelotti’s admiration for the player could potentially spell trouble with reference to United’s hopes of snapping him up over the subsequent few days, though. The Real Madrid boss previously insisted that Casemiro is a one-of-a-kind player who can be difficult to exchange, which suggests that he may try to throw a spanner within the works for United regardless of the midfielder’s desire to affix them before next month’s transfer deadline.
“If we’re going to look [in the market] for a duplicate of Casemiro, we’ll make a mistake,” Ancelotti told reporters at first of this 12 months.
“There are none in world football, he’s unique. But other players can play as a pivot. [Eduardo] Camavinga played there, who has other characteristics. He carries the ball well but he doesn’t have Casemiro’s tactical ability, I’ve never had a pivot like him.”
