Man Utd are willing to pay £67 million for Casemiro and DOUBLE his wages to scary numbers

Man Utd are willing to pay £67 million for Casemiro and DOUBLE his wages to scary numbers

United believe they have a chance of signing the 30-year-old.

Manchester United are reportedly prepared to offer £67 million for Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro - while also doubling his wages.

The Red Devils pulled out of a move for Juventus star Adrien Rabiot on Tuesday evening because of his wage demands.

It's seen the club turn their attention to other targets and their 'dream signing' is Los Blancos stalwart Casemiro, who is regarded as one of the world's best in his position.

A fee of £67 million is thought to be enough for Real, but wages are the most interesting part.

Casemiro earns around £184,000-per-week at the Santiago Bernabeu and United are prepared to double that.

It means the 30-year-old could pocket £368,000-per-week, making him the third-highest earner behind goalkeeper David de Gea and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The hierarchy at Old Trafford have been given belief a deal can be reached as Casemiro is 'annoyed' with a few decisions made by Real.

He didn't start Sunday's 2-1 win over Almeria with manager Carlo Ancelotti preferring summer signing Aurelien Tchouameni as the deepest midfielder instead.

Fabrizio Romano says Ancelotti will be vital when it comes to Casemiro making his decision.

He joined Real back in 2013 and has won three La Liga titles and five Champions League crowns in a hugely successful nine years.

'Don Carlo' is a huge fan of Casemiro and spoke glowingly of his talents back in January.

"If we are going to look [in the market] for a copy of Casemiro, we’ll make a mistake," Ancelotti explained per Diario AS. "There are none in world football. He’s unique.

"But other players can play as a pivot. [Eduardo] Camavinga played there, who has other characteristics.

"He carries the ball well but he doesn’t have Casemiro’s tactical ability. I’ve never had a pivot like him. I had [Andrea] Pirlo [at Milan] who had different characteristics. You have to adapt to what you have."

United have added Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez to their squad under new manager Erik ten Hag but he's still desperate for an 'elite' holding player.

Following two defeats in a row to Brighton and Brentford, United are bottom of the Premier League and return to action against bitter rivals Liverpool on Monday.
