Manchester United must replicate Liverpool transfer after Casemiro’s Saudi talks



| Last Updated:


Manchester United must look across to their rivals Liverpool when discussing Casemiro’s transfer fee in discussions with Saudi Pro League clubs.

Saudi League teams are interested in a once-world class defensive midfielder from Brazil whose legs seem to be have recently gone. No, it’s not 2023 and Fabinho. It’s 2024 and Casemiro.

According to the Telegraph, clubs from Saudi Arabia are pushing to sign the 32-year-old United midfielder and Casemiro’s representatives have held talks with the clubs from the emerging league.

Despite only signing for United at the start of last season, the former Real Madrid star has declined rapidly this term and with another two years remaining on his Old Trafford deal, now seems like the best time to sell.

The aforementioned report explained that United’s price tag for the Brazilian midfielder is yet to be seen. However, all those within the club need to do is look at what Liverpool got for Fabinho last summer.

He was sold to Al-Ittihad in a deal worth £40 million – one million more than they bought him for from AS Monaco in 2018.

United might not have got as long out of Casemiro, but if anything, the name of the five-time Champions League winner holds bigger weight and so could be priced slightly higher.

According to a recent report from Caught Offside, Al Nassr are preparing to make an offer of £34 million for the United midfielder. INEOS must look across to rivals Liverpool and know that they must negotiate that incoming offer.

After signing Casemiro for around £70 million in 2022, every penny will count for United as they look to strengthen their position to buy players in the market. They should be looking to gain between £50-60 million for their Brazilian midfielder.

Thankfully, it seems that they will finally be able to take advantage of the Saudi market after many of their competitors did last term.
