Casemiro is reportedly wanted by English Premier League club Manchester United after they gave up on their pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
According a report from Spanish outlet Marca, Real Madrid came to know about the situation through the 30-year-old defensive midfielder himself.
Given the player’s good relationship with the club, he believed he had to be transparent with his situation.
The report added that Real Madrid are aware that the no.14 has received an offer with an offer that would see his salary almost double, which would be difficult to refuse.
However, given the crisis that the struggling English giants are currently enduring, with a terrible start to the English Premier League season and a season in Europa League instead of the UEFA Champions League ahead, it is surprising that the player is mulling over a transfer.
