Bayern see their advances rejected by United star this week after failing to meet his financial expectations

Bayern Munich reportedly held preliminary talks with Casemiro this week regarding the prospect of a potential switch.

However, an agreement failed to materialise after Bayern’s proposal was too far below the 32-year-old’s financial expectations. After all, what club would be willing to pay an ageing midfielder £350,000 per week for four years despite arriving past his peak…?

Nevertheless, Casemiro has been the subject of widespread speculation following a particularly underwhelming campaign at Old Trafford. He’s found himself frequently linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, where he could reunite with former teammates Cristiano Ronaldo or Karim Benzema, while still pocketing an extortionate pay packet each week.

Casemiro uninterested in Old Trafford exit

He’s seemingly aware of the rumours surrounding his situation, too, as Brazilian outlet Trivela claims that the veteran would only consider leaving United if he receives an offer that not only meets his wage demands but also ensures that he can continue playing a key, integral role in the squad.

It remains to be seen if he will retain the same levels of faith from Erik ten Hag in 2024/2025. In some aspects, his experience has benefitted the team and his counterpart Kobbie Mainoo as the teenager navigated his transition to senior football, yet his sluggish and off-the-pace showings were often detrimental to the Reds’ results amidst such a turbulent term.

  1. Casemiro should leave if MUN can get a new younger CDM for replacement. It’s pretty good to have experienced player like him in the team for now, but not for the long term solution to gain success.
