Man Utd may include left-field extra in Casemiro deal as ‘Saudi transfer talks progress’

Talks between Manchester United and Saudi Arabia regarding a summer transfer for Casemiro are apparently moving along, and any agreement may include an intriguing add-on. After a miserable second season, it is highly likely that the Brazilian will go, and he is highly sought after in the Middle East.

After leaving Real Madrid late in the summer for a fee of £70 million, Casemiro made a significant contribution to Erik ten Hag’s inaugural campaign.

However, the 32-year-old midfielder’s form and health have declined this season, which seems to have persuaded INEOS to take advantage of Saudi interest in signing him.

According to reports, Casemiro is one of the main targets for this summer’s next phase of the Saudi Pro League revolution, along with Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, and Bruno Fernandes.

Furthermore, HITC asserts that negotiations have started with Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s assent. Alongside Matt Hargreaves, United’s head of transfer negotiations, INEOS is rumored to have been leading the talks.

Up to three Saudi Pro League teams, including two of the PIF’s teams and the recently promoted Al-Qadisiya, which is owned by Aramco, are reportedly in competition for Casemiro’s services.

Although Casemiro is rumored to be amenable to a move, his agents have participated in the transfer negotiations and have made it plain that they will only accept a transaction that meets their requirements.

Although United doesn’t want a protracted process, it must appease all stakeholders, which is rumored to have led to the idea of intriguing incentives.

According to reports, the Red Devils are open to adding extras to a deal, which might include a future friendly versus Casemiro’s new team.

They want to establish a good working connection with Saudi Pro League teams, and the left-field extra would help them do so by raising awareness of the league and its elite player lineup.

In the nearly ten years following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, United has developed a reputation for being unable to raise money through player transactions.

However, the popularity of the Saudi Pro League has recently assisted European powerhouses in moving high-earning periphery players, and United may potentially profit.

This summer, Casemiro will have company in the storefront window from players like Mason Greenwood, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Christian Eriksen, Jadon Sancho, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

In the upcoming months, Ratcliffe intends to oversee a clear-out at Old Trafford, and Casemiro may not be the only player heading to Saudi Arabia.
