Real Madrid club directors are keeping quiet officially, but in Valdebebas they believe that Casemiro has already made up his mind to join Manchester United, report Marca.
Manchester United have not yet made an official offer to sign the midfielder. Since Marca reported the news on Casemiro, the club president and player have not seen each other or spoken directly. It has not been necessary. They both know what each other thinks.
Real Madrid directors know that the Brazilian, 30, wants to accept the proposal made to him by the Old Trafford outfit.
The player knows that Real Madrid will not deny him the chance to move to England, but he is also aware that the move has to start with him. Madrid have sold club legends in the past and have gone on to succeed without the likes of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
If the right fee comes along from United, Madrid will likely allow their midfielder to move to Old Trafford before the end of the transfer window.
How much would Real Madrid let Casemiro leave for?
There is no definite figure, but €60 million is an amount that should be taken as a starting point.
