Casemiro Set to Depart Manchester United in Summer Overhaul
Despite a commendable inaugural season at Old Trafford following his move from Real Madrid in 2022, the 31-year-old midfielder is reportedly earmarked for departure as part of Erik Ten Hag’s squad reconstruction initiative.
Manchester United, gearing up for a significant transformation with the entry of a 25% stakeholder in Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is anticipating a strategic sporting overhaul. Casemiro, a prominent name linked to a prospective move to Saudi Arabia’s Pro League, is poised to be the marquee departure.
The recent Premier League debut of young midfielder Kobbie Mainoo against Everton further complicates Casemiro’s standing. Mainoo’s standout performance, underscored by Alejandro Garnacho’s remarkable goal, positions him as a noteworthy contender. However, Ten Hag’s public stance on fielding players solely based on merit, irrespective of age, hints at a shift in Casemiro’s prominence in European football.
Throughout his tenure at Manchester United, the seasoned midfielder, who boasts up to three-and-a-half years remaining on his contract and a reported weekly wage of £350,000 according to Spotrac, has notched up 11 goals and seven assists across 63 appearances in all competitions. As the club braces for a new era, it appears Casemiro might be one of the first casualties in the impending restructuring under Ten Hag’s management.
