Man United’s Casemiro Eyes Saudi Move

Manchester United’s midfielder Casemiro is contemplating a move to Saudi Arabia this summer, as reported by journalist Álvaro de Grado. The Brazilian international has faced injuries and poor form during his disappointing second season with the Red Devils. Rumors about his potential departure have circulated, and it appears Casemiro is seriously considering a shift to Saudi Arabia.

Last summer, a Saudi Pro League team reportedly tabled an offer close to 70 million euros to Manchester United. The interest persists, and it remains uncertain whether a new proposal will be made at the end of the current season.

Casemiro, who is not playing as well as before, is considered past his best by the club. They might sell him if they get a good offer from the Saudi Pro League, as part of their plan to reduce expenses led by Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

In addition to Casemiro, there’s speculation that Raphael Varane may also head to the Middle East this summer. Al-Nassr is reportedly ready to present Varane with a substantial contract of 58 million euros annually. The defender’s contract includes a 12-month extension option, but Manchester United has chosen not to activate it, meaning Varane could leave as a free agent after June.

With the Premier League club gearing up for a busy summer, new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is poised to instigate significant changes to both the first team and the squad. Manchester United is expected to target several young and talented players from the Premier League, signifying a shift in transfer strategy. The focus will now be on building a British core and recruiting promising young talents, moving away from the previous trend of acquiring high-profile, expensive stars. The upcoming transfer window promises an evolution in Manchester United’s approach as they navigate a new era under Ratcliffe’s ownership.
