Brazilian midfield enforcer Casemiro has been announced as a Manchester United player and that would come as a surprise considering the fact that the Real Madrid man is leaving champions league football to play in a troubled club like Manchester United.
The deal would eventually amount to £65m for the 30-year-old but Manchester United are confident that they’re getting a solution to their much-criticized McFred midfield pairing. Although the Brazilian will not be able to feature for his new club against Liverpool due to visa issues.
United are also about to spend big on Ajax winger Anthony with the Brazilian quite vocal about his desire to join his former manager Eric Ten Hag; these two new players will add dynamism to the Manchester United conversations and could change their outlook.
United currently sit at the base of the premier league and are yet to score a goal of their own with the only goal credited to them so far went down as a Mac Allister own goal in their 2-1 home loss to Brighton on the opening day of the league season.
What does Casemiro’s capture mean for Scott McTominay? The Scotsman is now a subject of transfer away from Old Trafford and Leeds United could be his destination; United will also look to listen to offers for Eric Bailley, Marcus Rashford and Diogo Dalot.
