Casemiro accepts personal terms with Manchester United as Red Devils as Red Devils hope to unveil signing at home clash against Liverpool on Monday August 19, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer

Manchester United hope to complete the £60m signing of Real Madrid midfielder Casemero in time to unveil him at Monday’s home game with Liverpool.

The Brazil star, 30, is a five-time Champions League winner and United’s attempt to land him was initially considered a long-shot.

However, talkSPORT understands the Brazilian has accepted the personal terms on offer from United and the two clubs are in advanced talks.

It was reported by Spanish football insider Guillem Balague, the midfielder has told his Madrid teammates that United have offered to double his £8.4m-a-year salary and he is yet to make a decision.

Despite being one of the most consistent players in Europe over a nine-year spell at the Bernabeu, there is a feeling Casemiro is approaching the end of his Madrid career, with younger players such as Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni ready to step in.

Casemiro’s contract expires in 2025 and there are suggestions this could be his last chance for another big-money contract in a top European league.

United are desperate for a strong finish to the window after an underwhelming summer of business and a catastrophic start to the season.

The Red Devils lost 2-1 to Brighton on the opening day and then suffered an embarrassing 4-0 defeat at Brentford on Saturday.

They have been linked with multiple players in the aftermath of the Brentford defeat and many believe their transfer policy lacks a clear strategy.

However, the signing of Casemiro would be a strong indicator that their fortunes are beginning to turn around.
