Respected sports journalist and transfer market analyst, Fabrizio Romano says Casemiro’s move to Manchester United is all but done as Real Madrid have accepted the English side’s bid.
In a Friday tweet, Romano disclosed that the 30-year-old Brazilian would be heading to Old Trafford for a €60 million fixed fee, and €10 million in add-ons.

This is just as Marca reported today that Casemiro said goodbye to his Real Madrid teammates and staff in preparation for a switch to Manchester United.
Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that the five-time UEFA Champions League winner wants to join Eric Ten Hag’s United for a “new challenge”, after nine years in the Spanish capital.
“I talked about it with [Casemiro] this morning.
“He wants to try a new challenge, a new opportunity. The club and I understand it. Casemiro — with what he’s done at this club, and with the person he is — we have to respect this desire he has.
“There are negotiations right now. Nothing is official, he’s still a Real Madrid player, but he wants to leave. If he goes and reaches an agreement, we have the resources to replace him,” ESPN quoted Ancelotti as saying during Friday’s press conference ahead of Real Madrid’s La Liga game at Celta Vigo.
He said he tried to talk the player out of a move away but his entreaties were unsuccessful.
