Casemiro, who just joined Manchester United from Real Madrid, may perform alongside Frenkie de Jong if the 25-year-old Barcelona player decides to make the switch.
As per reports, Manchester United is hopeful they can bring Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona before the transfer season closes. In that case, Casemiro will have the ideal companion in the middle of the park. The two are among the finest midfielders in the world, and they are unquestionably an improvement over the competent but unimpressive Scott McTominay and Fred.
As a result of De Jong’s strong bond with Erik ten Hag, Manchester United has spent more than three months trying to sign him. The pair previously collaborated at Ajax, where they helped the Eredivisie heavyweights go to the Champions League semifinals in 2019 with historic wins over teams like Real Madrid and Juventus. Adding two top-tier midfielders within the same transfer window would be like something out of FIFA 22. Instead of in real life, such extravagant expenditure is typically saved for EA Sports video games. But United is going for it. That’s commendable after recent defeats to Brentford and Brighton.
The Current owners have most likely been shaken awake. You don’t go from chasing Adrien Rabiot and Marko Arnautovic to suddenly signing Casemiro, a four-time Champions League champion, and De Jong.
