GOAL says that Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro is getting closer to signing with Manchester United. The Red Devils’ rumoured $71 million transfer offer to Los Blancos has been in the news for the past few days, and fans on social media are furious at the Premier League club. Frenkie de Jong is still trying to join United from Barcelona, but Real Madrid star Gareth Bale is being signed by United. Erik ten Hag’s team also pulled out of the deal with Juventus because Adrien Rabiot had a lot of requirements.
At first, it didn’t seem likely that Casemiro would move to Manchester United, but Real Madrid’s signing of Aurelien Tchouameni has shown the Brazilian midfielder that his time at the club is coming to an end. If he signs with United, the 30-year-old will bring a winner’s mentality because he has won everything, from LaLiga to the UEFA Champions League.

Since Erik ten Hag replaced Ralf Rangnick as manager, United has had a very different start to the Premier League than they had planned. After the second gameweek of the EPL, the club is in last place for the first time in its long history. At first, fans went crazy on social media making fun of the team and the transfer rumour. Then, they flooded Twitter with funny things to say about the England team.
The five-time winner of the Champions League will add much-needed “muscle” to Manchester United’s midfield, where newcomer Christian Eriksen hasn’t been able to make much of an impact so far. De Jong, a star player for Barcelona, hasn’t shown much interest in joining the team, and Ajax’s Lisandro Martnez is the only significant player they’ve added so far.
