Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Brazilan defensive midfielder Casemiro will leave the club following the transfer to English giant Manchester United in a press conference.
The experienced Brazilian midfielder expressed his feeling to try a new challenge towards his teammates and manager Carlo. As per reports the offer of Man United was too good to decline for Casemiro.
It is believed that €60m & €10m add-ons are offered to Real Madrid to lure in a 30-year-old midfielder into the Theatre of Dreams.
In a press conference held on 19th August 2022, Carlo Ancelotti said,
“I have spoken with Casemiro. He wants to try a new challenge, so we understand his decision. Casemiro will not play on Saturday. Yesterday I realised it was a real thing [Casemiro to Man Utd]”
With fewer than two weeks left in the summer transfer window, United was in a rush to sign a holding midfielder. Frenkie de Jong and Adrien Rabiot’s fees were agreed upon with Barcelona and Juventus, but neither transaction was completed.
Manchester United is now expecting at least 2 more deals to be done after Casemiro. They are in the market exploring the possible move for a Forward and a Right Back.
Casemiro probably the best in business is now moving to Old Trafford. Manchester United has offered him an improved salary with a longer-term contract to secure a move. However, the details about his personal terms are yet to be revealed.
