Casemiro ‘enters talks’ over record-breaking transfer in major Man Utd budget boost

In anticipation of a possible summer transfer, Al Nassr, a Saudi Pro League team, has reportedly increased their interest in Manchester United midfielder Casemiro. After a miserable second season, the 32-year-old is poised to quit Old Trafford, and Al Nassr seems prepared to give Sir Jim Ratcliffe a much-needed cash boost.

With their Premier League campaign potentially being their worst ever, United will need to make the necessary changes this summer, which will mean selling players.

The Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules, along with Financial Fair Play regulations, are expected to restrict the club’s net spending to approximately £100 million.

It is rumored that INEOS put a number of first-team players in the shop window in an attempt to manage the departure of underachievers before their first full season in charge of football operations.

Along with Tom Heaton and Jonny Evans, Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial will aid in the clearout since their contracts are about to expire.

Among the well-known names for sale are Christian Eriksen, Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho, and Casemiro.

Additionally, it is said that the captain of Brazil is being prepared to make a big financial move to Saudi Arabia, where he may get to see Cristiano Ronaldo again.

CaughtOffside claims that Al Nassr and Casemiro’s representatives had already discussed a summer transfer.

Within two years of joining the Red Devils in a £70 million transfer, the No. 18 is rumored to be willing to take on a new challenge provided the price is right.

The article also states that Al Nassr is prepared to present United with an initial offer that is estimated to be in the neighborhood of £34 million, along with a three-year contract.

It would break the record for the largest transfer fee ever obtained by United for a midfield player, which is presently held by Morgan Schneiderlin’s £24 million move to Everton in 2016.

If Casemiro’s £34 million departure to the Middle East is finalized this summer, it would also rank as the club’s fourth-largest sale in its illustrious history.

Although there have been eighteen more high-profile transfers in world football since Cristiano Ronaldo’s then-record £80 million move to Real Madrid in 2009, including Antony and Paul Pogba’s arrivals at United, the record still stands.

The next two transactions are Romelu Lukaku’s £74 million move to Inter Milan in 2019 and Angel di Maria’s £44 million steal from Paris Saint-Germain in 2015.

With Casemiro out of the picture, United would have more money available for transfers and could sign at least one midfield player to infuse the engine room with more vigor and physicality.
