His Move to Manchester
The Brazilian moved to Old Trafford from Real Madrid in a big-money move last summer and made a huge impression under Erik ten Hag in his debut season, helping United to a top-four finish and Carabao up glory.
Casemiro Regrets Joining Manchester United
It has now emerged that Casemiro ‘regrets’ making the move from Spain.
It is understood that his time at United could be “short-lived”, with the 31-year-old concerned over “institutional instability” at the club.
United are also “not happy with” Casemiro and are interested in signing Joao Neves from Benfica as a replacement.
Rumors of a new signee
The Catalan media outlet claims United are interested in signing Neves but will have to agree a fee of at least £61million to secure his signature.
It is said that he ‘regrets having left Madrid to join a team where there is a worrying institutional instability’ with Man Utd only winning the League Cup since his arrival.
And the report adds that ‘very soon the sentence may come’ that he has to leave Old Trafford with the Red Devils interested in signing Benfica midfielder Joao Neves.
United are unlikely to sell Casemiro in January given the fact he is still under contract until 2026. However, they could make a formal bid for Neves, which might led to Casemiro’s future being evaluated in the summer.
