Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Casemiro is leaving the club in search of a new challenge.

The midfielder is close to joining Manchester United in a deal worth £60million after reportedly agreeing a four-deal deal with the Red Devils.

Ancelotti said on Friday: “I spoke to Casemiro. He wants to try a new challenge. We understand his decision

“Negotiations are ongoing but he has decided to leave Real Madrid.”

“Casemiro will not play on Saturday. Substitute? We signed [Aurelien] Tchouaméni and he is one of the best on the market. Then we have [Toni] Kroos and [Eduardo] Camavinga.

“Yesterday I realized it was a real thing [Casemiro to Man Utd]. My plans will not change.”

The 30-year-old has been at Madrid since 2013 and has won a slew of important honors, including three La Liga titles and five Champions League titles.

The proposed deal with United means Erik ten Hag finally gets a midfielder after chasing Ajax’s Frenkie de Jong all summer.

Casemiro will undergo a medical on Friday but will not be able to play against rivals Liverpool on Monday night, even if he strikes a deal today or at the weekend.

Signing deals must be completed by 12:00 noon on the previous business day to be included in the same game week.

The Red Devils are also on the market for a forward and a right-back before the September 1 transfer window closes.

PSV’s Cody Gakpo and Ajax’s Antony have been linked, with an €80m offer for the latter being rejected earlier this week.
