Manchester United midfielder Casemiro has been subject to interest from Bayern Munich. United bought 30-year old Casemiro in 2022 as a short-term solution to their immense midfield problems.

However, many were concerned that the Brazilian may lose his abilities immediately as was the case with (then) 31-year old Bastian Schweinsteiger. Although, Casemiro played brilliantly in his first season at the Theatre of Dreams. The Brazilian aided Ten Hag and United to a 3rd place Premier League finish and an EFL Cup win.

Unfortunately, the (now) 32-year old Brazilian could not sustain his good run of form. Casemiro was far from his best and was unconvincing throughout the campaign. Fitness issues coupled with his inconsistent performances may see him leaving Old Trafford this summer. The Brazilian would also miss the crucial FA Cup Final against Manchester City. Although, his absence didn’t really mean much as United came out on top.

The Red Devils are planning to begin anew under INEOS and Ten Hag. Many players including Casemiro may be sold. In his prime, the Brazilian would be amongst the best defensive midfielders in the world of football. The 5-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid would be hoping to stay in Europe and prove himself.

Bayern make a U-turn over Casemiro move from Manchester United!

The Bavarians recently welcomed former Burnley Coach and Manchester City Legend Vincent Kompany as their new boss. Subsequently, Bayern were keen to make moves for securing Casemiro from Manchester United under the Kompany era.

The Brazilian was apparently also content with Bayern’s interest. However, the record Meisterschale holders have decided to pull out of negotiations for the midfielder. Bayern made an initial offer for the 32-year old. Although, Bayern’s valuation of Casemiro did not satisfy Manchester United.

It seems that Bayern have diverted their attention towards Fulham’s Joao Palhinha. The Portuguese is a top target for the Bundesliga side. Consequently, any possibility of Casemiro to Bayern is nullified. We can rule out Bayern’s initial enquiry as something done out of curiosity.

The problem is United bought a 30-year old Casemiro from Madrid for £60 million plus £10 million add-ons. That was a hefty price which the Red Devils had to pay. Naturally now, since the Brazilian could be leaving, United wish to cash-in as much as they could on him.

However, considering the Brazilian’s dip in form coupled with his age, the Red Devils may find themselves in a pickle. It will be interesting to see how much the Manchester Reds are able to get for the 32-year old veteran midfielder.

What lies in the future for Casemiro?

Casemiro is on a big payroll at United. The 32-year old is the highest paid player on the roster. Given United’s search for a considerable price and Casemiro’s exceptional wages, it might be difficult to find the right offer. But to United’s good, Saudi is lurking around for Casemiro move.

In recent years, Saudi has managed to foster a reputation for making extraordinary moves with exceptional financial spendings. If Casemiro moves elsewhere, the Brazilian will have to take a wage-cut. However, he may gain a raise in Saudi.

Regardless, some reports indicate that Casemiro is willing to stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford. The Brazilian wishes to prove that he remains one of the best defensive midfielders in the business. Now, that could be quite a gamble for the Red Devils.

Undoubtedly, the Brazilian was great in his first season and then poor. However, it seems likelier that the midfielder’s best days are behind him. Now how much would the Brazilian be able to improve given his last season standards is an uncertainty. Perhaps United would have considered keeping Casemiro if he was on a lesser pay grade.
