According to the British press, MU has offered a huge salary of 350,000 pounds / week to close the transfer of 60 million pounds for the Brazilian star. Casemiro will become one of MU’s highest earners of all time if the deal is completed.

Accordingly, the 30-year-old defensive midfielder will increase his salary twice as much as at Real Madrid to sign a 4-year contract with the “Red Devils”. Currently only Cristiano Ronaldo with a salary of £ 480,000 / week and goalkeeper David de Gea with £ 375,000 / week are at the top of the list with the highest salary at Old Trafford.
Manchester United’s director of football, John Murtough, has made progress over the past few days in closing deals for the Brazil international and Ronaldo’s former team-mate at Real Madrid. The Manchester side hope to confirm an agreement ahead of their Premier League clash with Liverpool this weekend.
This will be a much-needed deal for the declining “Red Devils”, who are ranked at the bottom of the Premier League table after losing the opening 2 matches. MU’s recruitment of rookies this summer has been criticized when only 3 players joined, left-back Tyrell Malacia, midfielder Lisandro Martinez and midfielder Christian Eriksen.
MU has not reached an agreement for their number 1 target, midfielder Frenkie de Jong. Chelsea are currently in the lead to sign the Dutch star, but Barcelona are yet to agree until they have settled De Jong’s overdue salary believed to be around £20m.

MU turned their attention to Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot when Murtough flew to Turin to meet the French midfielder’s agent and mother. That deal fell through because of Rabiot’s overwhelming demand for wages.
Casemiro has been at Real Madrid for almost a decade after moving there from Sao Paulo in 2013. He was a regular in the starting XI and helped Real Madrid win five Champions League titles and three La Liga titles. and won 3 times at the Club World Cup.
