The past few years have been difficult for Manchester United, who have started this 2022/23 campaign off terribly under Erik ten Hag. As such, they’re looking for reinforcements, and Casemiro is an option.
Reports are linking several names with a summer move to Old Trafford across various positions.
Manchester United have been linked with Alvaro Morata, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Raul de Tomas and Matheus Cunha to boost the forward line.
In contrast, Manchester United wants to buy Barcelona’s midfielder, Frenkie de Jong.
But, now there is the option of Casemiro, and some Manchester United directors are actually in Madrid now.
Real Madrid would prefer to keep the Brazilian as he is still a regular starter for Carlo Ancelotti, with whom he has an extra special relationship.
Still, the club directors are always keeping an eye on the market.
And the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu philosophy has always been that anything could happen up until the deadline day.
If Casemiro were to leave, Ancelotti would still have his sidekicks, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.
As well as Fede Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, Dani Ceballos and summer arrival Aurelien Tchouameni.

It was back in 2013 when Casemiro arrived at Real Madrid from Sao Paulo. Ramon Martinez moved quickly.
And he was obtaining a loan with an option to buy, a choice that was executed after he made his debut in the first team against Real Betis under Jose Mourinho.
