Casemiro ‘thinks he made mistake in Man Utd move’ with club already lining up £60million replacement

Casemiro ‘thinks he made mistake in Man Utd move’ with club already lining up £60million replacement

Casemiro thinks he made a mistake.

Casemiro thinks he made a mistake moving to Manchester United, a fresh report has claimed.

After a relatively impressive first season at Old Trafford, Casemiro has endured a difficult start to his second campaign in England.

The Brazilian midfielder has appeared off the pace, with his topsy-turvy form having contributed to United’s inconsistency.

Indeed, having been sent off during United’s Champions League loss to Galatasaray, the former Real Madrid star was hooked at half-time against Brentford ahead of the international break.

And Brazil’s fixtures brought little relief, with the 31-year-old having been substituted after picking up a knock in their 1-1 draw with Venezuela before returning to face Uruguay a few days later, where the five-time World Cup winners fell to a 2-0 defeat.

According to Nacional, United are not happy with Casemiro’s performances, while the midfielder is ‘regretting’ the decision he made to move to Old Trafford a year ago.

Casemiro allegedly regrets leaving Real to join such an unstable team, on and off the pitch, that have only won a Carabao Cup in his time there.

Moreover, United have reportedly identified a long-term replacement for the player - Benfica's Joao Neves.

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.

The 19-year-old made seventeen appearances in Benfica’s title-winning last campaign, while he has featured in eight league games this term, helping the Eagles to four clean sheets.
