Manchester United could offload a few players to make room for new additions.
According to a report from the Daily Mail (print edition, 24 November), Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr are keen to sign United midfielder Casemiro.
The Red Devils are also prepared to offload some of their high-earning stars, and one of them is Casemiro.
The Brazilian midfielder is the top earner at the club, pocketing around £375,000 a week. Since joining Manchester United in 2022, he has made over 60 appearances for the club, scoring 11 goals.
However, he will turn 32 next month and has not played since the start of November due to a hamstring injury. The Daily Mail claims that United are open to selling him this summer if they can recoup a chunk of the £70million fee paid to Real Madrid last year.
It looks unlikely that Casemiro will leave the club this month, but a potential move away from the club could be on the cards.
It has been reported that Al Nassr are “ready to make Casemiro a huge offer” after they received encouragement from Cristiano Ronaldo who has played for both Real Madrid and Manchester United in his career.
Another player who could leave the club, and possibly this month is Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The former Crystal Palace defender faces an uncertain future at Old Trafford and could be offloaded by the club. The Red Devils triggered the 12-month extension in his contract in December but they were unwilling to offer him a long-term deal.
The likes of Jadon Sancho, Antony Martial and Raphael Varane are among the other big United earners who could leave in the summer.
United must offload some of the high earners at the club to free up the space for exciting new players. A massive rebuilding work is needed in the summer, but whether Erik ten Hag will remain in charge is a big question.
