Carlo Ancelotti confirms Casemiro transfer wish to join Manchester United – Sport Media News

It’s a turbulent time for Manchester United but numerous green shoots have emerged since the abysmal humiliation to Brentford on Saturday.

The anti-Glazer protests seem to be working with three potential owners throwing their hats into the ring before two quickly withdrew their immediate interests. But the one who still remains is United fan and Ineos billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

He seems pretty serious about a potential takeover, which has excited supporters. The Old Trafford faithful have also been encouraged by their club’s chase of Casemiro.

The Manchester Evening News understands United are advancing in prospective talks for the Real Madrid midfielder, who is being seen as an alternative to Frenkie de Jong.

Whether Erik ten Hag’s consideration of dropping Harry Maguire for Monday’s clash with Liverpool is also another positive is for each club follower to decide for themselves.

Meanwhile, Eric Bailly is nearing an exit to Marseille amid being behind the United skipper and three others in the centre-back pecking order.

It looks increasingly like Casemiro will become Manchester United’s fourth summer signing, with talks progressing well for the Real Madrid midfielder.

The Manchester Evening News reported on Wednesday that United deem the 30-year-old a more attainable signing than long-term target Frenkie de Jong and have now agreed personal terms with the player.

It is understood United have offered the Brazil international a four-year deal with the option of an additional year, as part of a €60million proposal plus €10m in add-ons.

The bookies make him a very short price to stay at the club.

United have ‘targeted’ Asmir Begovic in their search for a No 2, according to The Telegraph.

The report claims Begovic, 35, is seen as perfect back-up to David De Gea with his ‘experience’ in the Premier League and ability to step in at any level, although it’s said Everton are keen to keep him.

Tom Heaton is considered as the third-choice goalkeeper by Erik ten Hag this season and United have been searching for a back-up stopper after Dean Henderson joined Nottingham Forest on loan.

Begovic is also a ‘homegrown’ player which is attractive to clubs.

Erik ten Hag asked Manchester United to sign him a central midfielder from one of the top sides in La Liga this summer. But instead of landing Frenkie de Jong, it looks like the arrival of Casemiro is a lot more likely to happen.

United insist a move for De Jong is not dead, but there is a general acceptance that if a deal for the Real Madrid midfielder can be agreed instead, then the pursuit of the Dutchman will no longer be financially viable this year.

The fact that United see Casemiro as a midfield alternative so late in the window highlights their scattergun approach, and although he would address the team’s need for a defensive midfielder, it begs the question of who actually wants him.

Manchester United would need to complete the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro and register him by 12pm on Friday if he were to make his debut against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Monday evening.

However, sources have since told the Manchester Evening News there is ‘no chance’ of this happening, given the player needs to gain a visa as well as Premier League approval to be registered.

It means the earliest supporters could get to see Casemiro in action would be away at Southampton a week on Saturday if a deal was completed within the next week.

Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro has agreed personal terms with Manchester United.

United have progressed with discussions to sign the 30-year-old Brazil international in a €60million transfer.

Sources say United have tried to accelerate the deal in an attempt to sign Casemiro in time for him to be available for the visit of Liverpool on Monday night but that is remote as he would also have to obtain a work permit.

Manchester United are advancing with a prospective transfer for Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro.

The Manchester Evening News reported on Wednesday United deem the 30-year-old more attainable than principal midfield target Frenkie de Jong and are continuing negotiations with Casemiro’s representative.

A source says Casemiro feels marginalised by Madrid following the signing of midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco for a summer-record fee of £85.3million.

Marseille are in discussions to sign Manchester United defender Eric Bailly.

Bailly, 28, is fifth-choice centre-back at United following the signing of Lisandro Martinez and he only made seven appearances for the club last season. It is understood a possible loan with an option to buy is being discussed for Bailly.

United have been widely criticised for rewarding Bailly with a new contract in April 2021 when his previous deal was due to expire in June 2022 and they intended on signing Raphael Varane.

There’s now just under two weeks to go before the window slams shut and United are continuing to look for new recruits in the time remaining.

Stick with us as we provide updates and breaking news throughout the day.

Chelsea are reportedly pushing on with their attempts to sign Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer. According to Fabrizio Romano, Aubemyang held direct talks with the Blues on Thursday to discuss personal terms, with Barcelona demanding £25million for his services.

Thomas Tuchel wants to further bolster his attacking options after recruiting Raheem Sterling from Manchester City in a £50m deal. And the 33-year-old seems to be closing in on a Premier League return just seven months after leaving Arsenal for Spain in the January transfer window.

When the smoke of a high-profile player’s potential arrival clears, supporters always ponder which shirt number they will inherit. Express Sport finds the four most likely options for Aubameyang at Stamford Bridge if his transfer goes through before the September 1 deadline.

It’s the most likely. Romelu Lukaku was destined to make history in the number nine shirt after his £97.5m return to Chelsea last summer. But after a nightmare first season, the Belgian striker has already jumped ship, re-signing for Inter Milan on a two-year loan deal and, inevitably, permanently.

So, an iconic attacking shirt represented by some of the club’s most iconic players is now free once again – although potentially carrying a curse if recent wearers are anything to go by. And Aubemayang would be happy to pick up a number he hasn’t worn for his club in 11 years but still wears for his country to this day.

The number 11 shirt is also available at Chelsea after another big-name forward, Timo Werner, returned to his former club this summer – sealing a £20m move to RB Leipzig. So if the Gabonese star doesn’t fancy the nine, he could inherit the 11, which he’s previously worn at Lille and AS Monaco.

Aubameyang wore the number 14 throughout his four-and-a-half years at Arsenal, currently occupied by Trevoh Chalobah at Chelsea. However, with the young defender primed for a loan exit in the final two weeks of the window, he could be happy to hand the reins to the new arrival.

After joining Barcelona from Arsenal in January, Aubameyang was handed the number 25 shirt and rediscovered his goalscoring form at the Nou Camp. If he’s a superstitious player, he could snub the other enticing options available to him and continue his run with the shirt in west London.
