Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Casemiro for £50.7m plus £8.5m in add-ons. They are optimistic the deal will be completed in the next few hours.
Personal terms with the player have already been agreed as well as a transfer fee for the player. He has agreed a 4 year contract at Old Trafford with an option to add one extra year.
It is understood that the Casemiro’s salary will be similar to that of David de Gea, who reportedly earns around £350, 000 weekly. Casemiro will arrive in Manchester soon to complete his medicals for the Red Devils.
United had the initial intention to hasten the deal, so that Casemiro would feature against Liverpool on Monday.
However, there is no chance of Casemiro being involved against Liverpool. He still needs a visa as well as needing to be registered. The cut-off for new signings to play this weekend is midday today.
