Manchester United have confirmed it has reached an agreement with Real Madrid on the transfer of Brazilian midfielder Casemiro.

The deal is subject to visa requirements, a medical check-up and the agreement of personal terms, but the 30-year-old is keen to move to Old Trafford, as Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti confirmed today.

United wrote on their club website: ‘We are all looking forward to welcoming Casemiro to Old Trafford.’

Erik ten Hag’s team has been looking for a central midfielder all summer, but was repeatedly rejected by various goals.

They first chased Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, but problems got in the way off the field and they eventually had to give up the chase.

Personal terms then prevented Juventus star Adrien Rabiot from moving to Old Trafford, but the Red Devils have finally struck a deal, and Casemiro will officially join the club next week.

Ancelotti admitted he lost one of his star players today, saying: “I’ve talked to him and he wants to try something new. The club is understanding because of the type of person Casemiro is.

Negotiations are underway and nothing has been decided yet, but his desire to leave is clear.

“When he goes, there’s no doubting the respect and affection that exists for him here. When someone as nice, serious and professional as Casemiro leaves, you are sad, but you understand and we respect him and his decision.”

Real Madrid, who posted a thank-you video for the midfielder on social media tonight, are said to be interested in signing Tottenham player Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as a replacement.

The deal comes after Casemiro told Real Madrid on Wednesday evening that he wanted to move to Erik ten Hag’s squad after nine glorious years in the Spanish capital.

The deal is expected to be worth £60million, with the Brazilian signing a four-year contract with the club.

He played over 500 professional matches during his career, including 63 at international level for his Brazil.

He also won 17 major honours, including five Champions League titles and the Copa America.
