'Here we go': Manchester United have full agreement on Casemiro, says Romano

Manchester United have full agreement to sign Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Brazil international is closing in on a move to Manchester United, which is expected to be completed in the coming days.

Erik ten Hag chose not to address the imminent move in his pre-match press conference. Casemiro won’t be registered in time to play Liverpool.

The move is a coup for United, bringing in a key midfielder the club hoped to sign all summer. It’s a case of better late than never, or not at all.

Casemiro, 30, wants a new challenge, with Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti telling his press conference today that the player had decided to move on.

The midfielder will become United’s fourth summer signing, following Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez, and more incomings are expected before the transfer deadline.

An official announcement from United is expected in the coming days.
