£70 million Man Utd star still has Saudi Arabia move 'on his mind' as transfer interest 'remains valid'

Manchester United could be bidding farewell to a number of senior players this summer.

When this summer's transfer window opens up, Manchester United will have more to consider than just who they are going to splash the cash on. A number of current players' futures are yet to be determined and a potential Old Trafford exodus could be on the horizon.

As things stand, players including Jonny Evans and Anthony Martial are due to leave the club upon the expiration of their contracts. However, there are a number of other names who could be on the way out for a fee as Sir Jim Ratcliffe looks to kickstart a new era at the club.

Casemiro is one player whose future has sparked a lot of debate. The midfielder joined United in August 2022 in a £70 million move from Real Madrid, but he could be looking for a new, and potentially final chapter in his career this summer.

90min reported in December that Casemiro has accepted his future lies away from Manchester and is 'ready to leave' the club. Previous reports also claimed the Brazilian's desire to retire in Saudi Arabia, which could well be an option for him once the 2023/24 Premier League season comes to a close.

According to Relevo, United received an offer from the Saudi Pro League last summer in the region of the same amount they paid Real Madrid for Casemiro's signature.

The midfielder, who turns 32 this week, still has retirement in Saudi Arabia 'on his mind', where he can 'sign one last contract'. The league's interest in Casemiro also 'remains valid' as the final months of the season tick down.

Despite being a key member of Erik ten Hag's team, the Brazilian could well be part of the club's summer switch up. Not only are United looking to make way for exciting new signings but they will need to balance the books by freeing up space in the wage budget.
