Manchester United target Casemiro to strengthen their midfield

According to Marca, Manchester United are on the trail of Casemiro, under contract until 2025 with Real Madrid. After a disastrous start to the season, the Red Devils are looking to densify their midfield. And the profile of the 30-year-old Brazilian would please Erik ten Hag.

Charisma, talent and grinta. Manchester United lack almost everything at the start of the season. Especially in midfield. A sector that the Red Devils intend to strengthen by the end of the transfer window, after a catastrophic start, marked by two defeats in the Premier League against Brighton (1-2) and Brentford (4-0). With this in mind, the English club would currently turn to Real Madrid .

According to Marca , Manchester United have targeted Casemiro to expand their midfield. After the departure of Paul Pogba to Juventus and that of Nemanja Matic to AS Roma, Erik ten Hag’s team lacks captains. And the Dutch coach would like to entrust this role to Casemiro. No concrete offer has yet been made for the 30-year-old, under contract until 2025. And nothing says that the Brazilian international (63 caps, 5 goals), whose rating is estimated at 40 million euros through the Transfermarkt site, or interested in moving to England.

Real Madrid have people in the middle

Carlo Ancelotti appreciates him enormously and is counting on him this season. But the merengue club could be pragmatic in the event of an attractive offer from the Red Devils. After recruiting AurĂ©lien TchouamĂ©ni this summer in Monaco (80 million euros), the winners of the last Champions League are particularly armed in the midfield, with Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde or Dani Ceballos.

Depending on his desires, Real could open the door to the former Sao Paulo player, recruited in 2013 (6 million euros) and loaned to Porto the following season. The man with five Champions League started in the UEFA Super Cup won against Eintracht Frankfurt last week in Helsinki (2-0). But he only entered at the end of the match during the victory in Almeria, Sunday, during the first day of La Liga (0-1).
