Manchester United ready to sell Casemiro this summer

Manchester United will reportedly look to part ways with 32-year-old midfield mainstay Casemiro in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Football Insider, Casemiro might not be at Manchester United after the summer transfer window shuts down. The Red Devils are ready to part ways with the 32-year-old midfield mainstay after his struggles for much of the 2023/24 campaign thus far.

Casemiro and his Manchester United journey so far

Casemiro was a popular signing when he swapped Real Madrid for Manchester United in August 2022. While spending a big-money sum to sign the Brazilian international was questionable, he proved his naysayers wrong with aplomb in his debut season by being one of the best players in Erik ten Hag’s team.

However, Casemiro’s performance levels have fallen considerably in the 2023/24 campaign, with the veteran midfielder suffering from the dreaded “second season syndrome”. With opponents figuring him out, the 32-year-old has struggled to make his mark for most of the term while also struggling with a few fitness issues.

Nevertheless, the former Real Madrid midfielder has been a mainstay for Manchester United whenever he has been fit and available, amassing 2,578 minutes of game time across 32 appearances in all competitions. He has also chipped in with five goals and three assists. However, Casemiro’s future has been the subject of intense speculation ahead of the summer transfer window.

What next?

Recent reports have linked Casemiro with several well-known clubs across Europe. Saudi Pro League outfits have also shown interest in him. The latest update has revealed that Manchester United are ready to part ways with the 32-year-old mainstay in the summer transfer window.

The Brazilian international, who has missed the boat for the upcoming Copa America due to his struggles at Manchester United, needs to resurrect his career in the final leg of his playing days. Meanwhile, the Premier League heavyweights can lighten their wage bill by cashing in on the experienced midfielder.

The 32-year-old Brazilian international is one of the top earners at Manchester United. So, with Raphael Varane also departing from Old Trafford in the summer transfer window, parting ways with his former Real Madrid teammate will help in restructuring the club and the first team.
