Bayern Munich ‘held talks’ to sign Man United star

Bayern Munich held talks with Manchester United midfielder Casemiro before making a fresh approach for Fulham ace Joao Palhinha, according to Trivela.

The Brazil international had a difficult second season with the Red Devils. He was injured for part of the campaign and also struggled for form and consistency.

The 32-year-old was dropped from the starting XI in the FA Cup final last month. He eventually failed to make the matchday squad after an injury in the warm-up.

Bayern reportedly held talks with Casemiro over a potential transfer. The midfielder welcomed the possibility, but they could not meet his financial demands.

Casemiro still wants to win trophies in European football and he is prepared to fulfil his contract at United. He will only leave the club if an offer satisfies him financially and is a good project.

Bayern have revived their interest in Palhinha after contacting Casemiro. They are in talks to sign the Fulham star in a deal worth £40 million.

Casemiro looks on course to stay at Man Utd

Casemiro had a good debut season with United but lacked consistency last term.

The midfielder was caught out of position numerous times, putting extra pressure on the backline. He was dribbled past on more than two occasions per league game.


Ten Hag continued to place his trust in Casemiro, but he chose to start Sofyan Amrabat over him in the FA Cup final against Manchester City last month.

Despite this, the £17 million-rated star (as per Transfermarkt) looks on course to stay at the club. He appears determined to continue in Europe instead of securing a big payday in Saudi Arabia.

No European club will likely meet his current salary of £350,000 per week.

Casemiro will be eager to redeem himself at United next term. It is unclear whether his decision to continue at the club will impact their plans to sign a marquee midfielder.
