Transfer: Real Madrid set astonishing asking price for Manchester United to sign Casemiro

Real Madrid have set a huge asking price for clubs interested in signing their combative midfielder, Casemiro this summer.

Manchester United are keen on bringing the Brazilian to Old Trafford this summer to solve their midfield problems that have seen them lose their two opening Premier League matches.

Los Blancos are demanding a massive fee from Manchester United, according to reports on Spanish radio station, Onda Cero.

Erik ten Hag wants two new central midfielders to arrive at the club before the transfer window closes.

United have backed out from a deal for Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot due to his enormous salary demands and are now focusing on Casemiro.

The report says that Real Madrid have little immediate desire to sell Casemiro, but could be tempted to cash in if they receive a big enough offer.

But the English Premier League club have to pay €70million (£59m) for them to allow the 30-year-old Brazilian go.

It remains to be seen if Manchester United’s hierarchy would be prepared to pay so much for a player who turns 31 in February.

Casemiro cost just €6m (£5m) when he moved to the Bernabeu in 2013 from Sao Paulo.
