Real Madrid open to selling Casemiro to Man Utd in deal worth over £60m

Real Madrid are open to the sale of Casemiro to Manchester United in a potential deal worth in excess of £60m.

Talks are ongoing between the two clubs with United receiving enough encouragement to give them belief that a deal is possible.

The 30-year-old is greatly appreciated by Real boss Carlo Ancelotti. However, Casemiro is reportedly not viewed as indispensable given the wealth of options the Champions League holders have in the centre of the pitch.

Luka Modric signed a contract extension to 2023 and Toni Kroos also provides pedigreed experience to mesh with younger talents, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Federico Valverde.

Real cannot guarantee a spread of minutes to Manchester United's potential new signing. It will be viewed as sensible to get his wages off the books, while banking a big transfer fee.
