Man Utd ready to sell Casemiro to Saudi clubs, would like an early transfer

Saudi Pro League clubs are pushing to sign Manchester United midfielder Casemiro this summer, according to the Telegraph.

The Brazil international has had a tough second season with the Red Devils and was recently excluded from his country’s squad for the Copa America.

Casemiro has been linked with a possible move to the Middle East for some time and multiple Saudi clubs are interested in signing him.

United are prepared to sell the 32-year-old and would like any deal agreed at the start of the transfer window. However, they will not push him out.

There is also huge interest in club captain Bruno Fernandes, but a deal is far less likely.

United preparing to part ways with Casemiro

Casemiro has built his reputation as a world-class player over the years.

He had a brilliant debut campaign with United, impressing with his offensive and defensive contributions. However, he has regressed during his second season.

The Brazilian has looked short of pace and has been outrun by opposition midfielders. He has also been guilty of being out of position while he has been dispossessed regularly.

United need a fresh face in the heart of the midfield. They are eyeing an ambitious move for Benfica wonderkid Joao Neves, who could cost more than €100 million.

The club should look to recoup some funds with Casemiro’s exit. A fee in the region of €30-35m would help balance their books.

Fernandes has also been linked with a move to Saudi, but United are unlikely to entertain a deal for him. He has been their best player this term.
