**Manchester United’s Casemiro: A Tempting Offer?**
There is talk that Manchester United might entertain the idea of letting Casemiro go in the upcoming January transfer window, provided they receive a suitable offer.
United secured the signing of the Brazilian international last season, and while he made a significant impact in his debut year at Old Trafford, the second season has proven to be more challenging.
Casemiro, the 31-year-old midfielder, was acquired for a hefty £60 million fee and is reportedly earning £300,000 per week. His age and the financial implications are factors that have caught the attention of the United hierarchy and certain fans.
Despite a recent dip in form, Casemiro remains a pivotal player in the squad, currently topping the club’s scoring charts with four goals this season. In his first year at Manchester United, he played 51 matches and netted seven times.
However, a hamstring injury sustained during a League Cup defeat to Newcastle sidelined him, with Erik ten Hag, United’s manager, anticipating an extended absence. During this hiatus, rumors have surfaced linking him with a move to Saudi Arabia in 2024.
According to 90min, Manchester United believes that they could potentially recoup a substantial portion of their initial investment in Casemiro, encompassing both the transfer fee and wages. Essentially, they might recover a significant part of the £60 million spent while relieving themselves of a high-earning player.
The club is not actively seeking to sell Casemiro, but they are open to the idea if the “right price” comes along.
Furthermore, a potential move to the Middle East could see Casemiro reuniting with former Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo at Al Nassr or linking up with international partner Neymar at Al Hilal.
Casemiro still has four years remaining on his contract with United, but the club might view this as an opportune moment to capitalize on his high market value.
