Saudi Arabia clubs respond to Manchester United’s price demand for Casemiro



| Last Updated:


Saudi Arabian clubs have reportedly responded to the demands Manchester United have made for Casemiro this summer transfer window.

Following his exclusion from the FA Cup final squad that defeated Manchester City last weekend, it seems more and more likely that Casemiro will be leaving Manchester United this summer.

Although the club confirmed to UtdDistrict that he was left out due to a last-minute injury in the warm-up, subsequent reports have claimed that Casemiro is currently at odds with Erik ten Hag.

The report claims that he is unhappy with Ten Hag’s decision to exclude him from the FA Cup final squad due to the midfielder not being 100% fit, leading to a significant rift between the two.

It is said that Casemiro will now meet with the club’s board to discuss his future, with a potential exit on the horizon. Interest from Saudi clubs, including Al-Nassr, Al-Ahli, and Al-Qasidiya, could provide lucrative opportunities for him, with Saudi Pro League sides handing out high-salary deals to professional players.

Initial reports from earlier this week claimed that United have now set a price tag of around £30 million for Casemiro, a significant drop from the £60 million they paid Real Madrid for his services two years ago.

However, according to a fresh update from GOAL, none of the Saudi Pro League clubs mentioned are ‘falling for’ that valuation, meaning it is now likely that United will not get what they hope for the player.

United are looking to raise over £100 million this summer in sales, with those such as Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood also for sale in the coming window, as well as others who may depart, including Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
