Good morning Man Utd fans!
Man United have completed the signing of Real Madrid star Casemiro.
The 30-year-old Brazilian is reportedly now set to agree a four-year deal with an option for an extra year.
He is Erik ten Hag’s fourth signing this summer and SunSport understand a £60m fee has been agreed, which could rise to £70m.
Casemiro could make his debut against Southampton next week after United missed the deadline to register him in time for Monday’s clash with Liverpool.
The midfielder has to complete personal terms to complete the transfer and is expected to earn £350,000 a week.
Casemiro will fly to Manchester in style to complete his move to the club.
The Brazilian is expected to take a private flight to the region to undergo a medical check-up, Fabrizio Romano reported.
Once his health check is complete, he will be featured as a United player.
Elsewhere, Borussia Dortmund boss Hans-Joachim Watzke has ended rumors linking the club to Cristiano Ronaldo, despite admiring the player.
Watzke said: “I love him as a player, it’s certainly a charming idea to see Cristiano Ronaldo play at Signal Iduna Park.
“But there is no contact at all between those involved. So you should stop talking about it from now on.”
Meanwhile, Man United target Antony has reportedly been forced to train alone at Ajax, with the Dutch champions reportedly defying a £67.5million bid.
The Daily Mail report that the star is keen to join United and could be left out of the squad for Sunday’s clash with Sparta Rotterdam.
Finally, Man United skipper Harry Maguire is reportedly being eyed by Chelsea.
United are keen on Blues winger Christian Pulisic and the Stamford Bridge side are considering a swap deal with Maguire, according to the Daily Mail.
The outlet claims Chelsea have made an inquiry about Maguire’s availability despite their main target being Leicester City ace Wesley Fofana.
