Manchester United are now reportedly stepping up their efforts to sign midfielder Casemiro from Real Madrid and would ideally like to have the deal finalized before they take on Liverpool on Monday night.

The Red Devils sent officials to the Spanish capital this week to scout the Brazil international, with United ready to offer him a five-year deal that would nearly double his salary.

On Wednesday, Casemiro spoke to Florentino Perez about United’s approach and while Real don’t want him to leave, they feel he has earned the right to decide his own future and won’t stand in his way .

However, Perez expects a hefty transfer fee for the five-time Champions League winners, with Casemiro likely to demand a fee of around £59million.

United had yet to be in touch with Real’s hierarchy about the move and were awaiting the green light from the 30-year-old enforcer, who had already been burned by the unsuccessful pursuit of Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong.

But now that Casemiro seems very receptive to the move, the Spanish TV show is showing El Chiringuito TV claim that United are rapidly accelerating talks.

The midfielder’s future could be fully settled in the next 48 hours, with Real ready to cash in on £59m – a fee United are willing to pay – and Casemiro happy with the terms communicated to him.

This salary package – and the length of the deal – is considered practically too good to turn down, and all parties believe a deal could be closed quickly.

In fact, El Chiringuito goes as far as to say that United want Casemiro registered in time to face Liverpool on Monday night – although that seems a bit far-fetched as the deadline is Friday midday.

The Real midfielder has some history against Liverpool, having twice been on the winning side against the Merseysiders in the Champions League final – including last season.

Casemiro’s contract offer has yet to be put in writing and an official offer made, but another Spanish outlet, Relationclaims the Brazilian has already told his teammates he would see each other at Old Trafford.

He already has several familiar faces at the club, having played alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane at the Bernabeu, while often playing alongside Fred for the national team.

Carlo Ancelotti still sees Casemiro as a key player but both the Italian manager and club recognize that landing a big fee for a player who turns 31 in February is an opportunity not to be missed.

Not only do they already have a horde of talented central midfielders – including Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Dani Ceballos – but it would bolster their finances and give them enormous leeway under La Liga’s strict financial regulations .
