Manchester United have agreed with Real Madrid to sign midfielder Casemiro for £59.5 million (€70 million).
Casemiro needs to be in the UK within the next 48 hours to pass the medical exam and complete his move to Old Trafford on a four-year deal.
The 30-year-old Brazil international is in talks over personal terms, which are set to be finalized shortly before his proposed move to Old Trafford.
Casemiro is expected to arrive in the UK in the next 24 to 48 hours to undergo a medical exam and officially sign a four-year contract with an option for a further year with Manchester United. De Jong’s deal is “highly unlikely” in this window.
The fans were shell shocked after the transfer news of their star player Casemiro. This is what the fans had to say about the best Real Madridian.
The ultimate professional that always put the club before himself and understood what it meant to play for Real Madrid and it’s fans. Forever grateful for the memories he helped create.

De Jong’s deal is’ highly unlikely’.
Manchester United’s interest in Casemiro comes amid the club’s unsuccessful trade for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
The deal to bring the Dutch international to Old Trafford ahead of the September 1 transfer deadline looks increasingly unlikely, although De Jong remains a long-term target for United manager Erik Ten Hag.
If Barcelona offered United the chance to sign De Jong in the last two weeks of the window, it would take a creative deal from United to get over the line.
Will United come back for Antonio?
Manchester United is reluctant to increase its offer because there is a feeling the player is interested in securing a move to Old Trafford, and dialogue between the two clubs remains open.
