Manchester United defender Casemiro is ready to leave in the January transfer window, according to report in 90min.
That is according to 90min, which has noted United’s stance on the former Real Madrid star.
So, what has been reported about Manchester United and Casemiro? Let’s take a look.
Casemiro open to leaving Manchester United
Well, according to 90min, Casemiro is ready to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window.
Clubs in the Saudi Pro League are keen on the former Real Madrid defensive midfielder. Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked. United manager Erik ten Hag has previously described the midfielder as “magnificent”.
Casemiro himself is willing to leave Old Trafford for good this summer. The £300,000-a-week (90min) accepts that now might be the best time for him to start a new chapter in his career. United themselves are willing to sell the player they spent £60 million on.
My View: Manchester United should keep Casemiro until the end of the season
In my view, Manchester United should not sell Casemiro in the January transfer window. I believe that the Red Devils have a lot to play for this season and that the Brazil international will play his role.
MORE MANCHESTER UNITED STORIES
True, United are out of the UEFA Champions League and are not going to challenge the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool for the Premier League title, but they are very much in the running for the top four.
After all, Erik ten Hag’s side are only six points behind city rivals, defending champions and fourth-placed Manchester City in the table.
Casemiro played well last season. Yes, the midfielder is injured at the moment and did not start the current campaign strongly, but we know that he is a brilliant footballer.
The 31-year-old is a very experienced player who is a force to be reckoned with in the middle of the season. If United do want to cash in on Casemiro, then they should look at offloading him in the summer of 2024 and not in January 2024.
