Man Utd 'braced for huge Casemiro bid' as fans beg 'please sell him' and say 'leave while you still have your dignity' | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED are bracing themselves for a huge bid from Saudi Arabia for Casemiro, according to reports.
And fans have begged the Red Devils to “please sell him” while telling the Brazilian to “leave while you still have your dignity.”
Casemiro, 31, joined United from Real Madrid 15 months ago and made an immediate impact in Erik ten Hag’s side.
However, the ace has struggled for form this season.
And a hamstring injury picked up last month has seen him ruled out until next year.
United fans will be hoping Casemiro can bounce back from his latest setback without any issues.

But there’s a chance the anchorman may have already played his last game in a Red Devils shirt.
90min claims Casemiro is the subject of intense interest from Saudi Pro League chiefs.
Clubs such as Al-Hilal, Al-Ahli and Al-Nassr embarked on mega spending sprees over the summer.
And bids for Casemiro could arrive in January to kickstart a new wave of signings in the Middle East.

United are looking to raise cash for their own transfers and could be open to doing business as Casemiro approaches his 32nd birthday.
Fans are certainly hoping a deal goes through, with one saying: “Please Man United sell him please.”
Another declared: “Good option for him, everything starting to go south at United, leave while you still have your dignity and respect intact.”
One noted: “I hope United don’t fumble this.”
Another added: “He needs to move on, his time has come.”
But Casemiro is not the only Old Trafford star being lined up by the Saudis.
It’s claimed captain Bruno Fernandes, striker Anthony Martial and defender Raphael Varane are all being targeted for moves next summer.
United would be reluctant to lose Fernandes, who netted 40 goals in his first 18 months at the club.
But he’s scored just 27 times since the start of the 2021-22 campaign.
And with his influence on the wane, a mega bid could tempt United into talks.
As for Martial, he is out of contract next summer and can agree a free transfer with Saudi clubs from January.
Varane’s deal runs for another year until 2025.
But he has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and United are unlikely to stand in his way should a suitable bid arrive.
