Manchester United’s Real Madrid target Casemiro is set to join the club after his current coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that the midfielder desires a ‘new challenge’ on Friday (August 19).
Manchester United representatives have held talks with Madrid officials and are working on a smooth deal as soon as possible. After failing to sign FC Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, United shifted their focus quickly on Madrid’s five-time Champions League winner. The big question that remained in Liverpool and United fans’ mind is whether the Brazilian will feature in the clash between the two sides.
As the Brazil international is set to become the fourth signing under the Erik ten Hag era, it is too late for him to make his Premier League debut against Liverpool. Notably, Casemiro often nicknamed the ‘TANK’ is set to become a key asset for the club in the coming days. As mentioned he is the fourth signing of this summer at Old Trafford after Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, and Christian Eriksen.
Manchester United are in desperate need of some momenmtum as they were thrashed by Brentford 4-0 in their previous clash and lost 2-1 against Brighton on the opening day of the new Premier League season.
Real Madrid manager spoke out on Casemiro’s situation on leaving Real Madrid and said, “I have spoken with Casemiro. He wants to try a new challenge. We understand his decision Negotiations are ongoing but he has decided to leave Real Madrid.”
