Official | Manchester United reach agreement in principle for Casemiro

Manchester United have reached an agreement in principle for Casemiro, the club confirmed on Friday night.

In a statement, United said: “Manchester United is delighted to announce that the club has reached agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of Casemiro.

“The transfer is subject to the agreement of personal terms, UK visa requirements and a medical.

“Casemiro has played over 500 professional games, including 63 at international level for his native Brazil. He has won 17 major honours in his illustrious career including five Champions League titles and the Copa America.

“We all look forward to welcoming Casemiro to Old Trafford.”

Casemiro is set to join United in a deal worth €60m plus €10m in add-ons. The 30-year-old trained with Madrid’s squad on Friday but Ancelotti confirmed at his pre-match news conference that talks were underway with United.

He will leave Madrid after a hugely successful stint with the club he joined in 2013.
