Respected Spanish news outlet Marca is now reporting that the 30-year-old could have his medical at United tomorrow.
” Casemiro will undergo a medical with Manchester United tomorrow.”
“He has accepted Manchester United as his destination.”
Spanish journalist Jose Felix Diaz claims the Los Merengues have given the Brazil international permission to undergo a medical in England as early as tomorrow.
On the agreed price tag, Diaz says, “Casemiro to Manchester United will be closer to €70m rather than the €60m which was initially discussed.”
If the reports from Spain are to be believed, United might have finally gotten their man.
Casemiro is one of the best midfielders in the world in his position, and it looks like United have finally managed to address their biggest weakness.
