Manchester United may have been dealt a blow in their rumoured transfer pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro as the Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly prepared to pay big for the Brazilian.
Spanish publication Diario Gol have previously reported that Man United are admirers of the Brazilian, who has shown himself to be an integral part of the Real’s squad in recent times.
However, the Red Devils could be priced out of a move for Casemiro as latest speculation suggests the Ligue 1 giants could stump up a huge sum of cash to pay his release clause.
According to the latest update from the Spanish publication, PSG are prepared to meet the La Liga giants’ £176million fee to trigger his buy-out clause, which surely puts them in a commanding position.
The 25-year-old has plenty of experience in that department they required, winning the trophy three times with Real Madrid.
The Ligue 1 giants are one of the wealthiest clubs in world football and have spent largely on a number of world class stars in recent times, and none more so than this year.
Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are among those player to move to the Parc des Princes this season in surprise moves, and Casemiro would be another great signing to add balance to their growing crop of talents.
