Manchester United are interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro as United’s search for midfield reinforcements goes on.

According to ESPN via Metro, Casemiro would prefer to stay at Real Madrid this summer but has not ruled out a move to Manchester United.

Casemiro has been a hugely influential figure at Real Madrid in recent years alongside Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, establishing himself as one of the best midfielders in the world.

The Brazilian was a key player in midfield as Real Madrid won the Champions League and La Liga last season.

Real Madrid have signed two of the best young midfielders over the last 12 months, with Aurelien Tchouameni joining countryman Eduardo Camavinga in the Spanish capital this summer.

The two Frenchman started Real’s season opener against Almeria alongside Kroos at the weekend, with Casemiro among the subs.

Casemiro’s preference is reportedly to stay at Real Madrid but the Brazilian midfielder isn’t ruling out a move to Old Trafford with Manchester United considering a £50million offer.
