Fabrizio Romano provides huge update on Man United’s pursuit of Casemiro

Manchester United appear to be on the verge of signing Real Madrid defensive midfielder Casemiro.

The Red Devils were previously linked with moves for Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong and Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot, however, after both proposed deals stalled, Casemiro emerged as a top contender to make a surprise switch to Old Trafford.

Following United’s interest, which has been extensively reported, Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti, who spoke to reporters on Friday, as quoted by Marca, said: “I spoke with him this morning. He wants to try a new challenge, a new opportunity. 

“The club understands him for what he has done and for the person he is. There are negotiations, nothing is official, but his will to get out of it is clear. If there is an agreement, we have resources to replace it.”

Now, the latest in the rapidly developing saga comes from leading transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
