Man United star ‘wants to join’ Bayern Munich with Erik ten Hag open to offers for five players

Manchester United’s Casemiro wants to join Bayern Munich, with Erik ten Hag open to offers for the player, according to reports.

Manchester United are open to selling five players in January, according to the Manchester Evening News, as Erik ten Hag‘s club tries to raise funds for further incomings in the summer.

It is said that all of Anthony Martial, Raphaël Varane, Casemiro, Donny van de Beek, and Jadon Sancho are available for transfer, although it is also stressed that Ten Hag is not willing to sanction any transfer that could weaken his squad.

All five of these players have lost their places at Old Trafford this season either due to injury, disciplinary action, or falling out of favour. Jadon Sancho has not played since August after his public spat with the manager, while both Casemiro and Anthony Martial have not played too many significant minutes due to injury issues.

Raphaël Varane has been demoted to a bench role following good performances from Victor Lindelöf and Harry Maguire, and Donny van de Beek remains almost completely sidelined after he was deemed surplus to requirements in the summer, but his move to La Liga fell through.

Casemiro, in particular, is said to now be eyeing up a move away, with Bayern Munich his preferred destination.

This is according to Brazillian journalist Jorge Nicola, who has claimed on Youtube that Casemiro feels a “big desire” to play for the German club. Nicola also adds that there are talks for the midfielder to join in the summer.

Bayern Munich are due to play at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening in the Champions League, with Ten Hag needing a win from his players in order to have any chance of qualifying for the knockout stage.

United must see their win coupled with a draw between FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray in order to finish second in their group and advance in the competition. Third place would see them drop to the Europa League, while fourth, their current position, knocks them out of Europe entirely.
