Casemiro, Manchester United's defensive midfielder, who has long been the subject of transfer rumours may be reunited with Cristiano Ronaldo by Al Nassr, as the club might be interested in signing him.

Despite the fact that Casemiro transfer rumours are circulating, Manchester United has yet to publicly announce their stance on the Brazilian footballer.

According to the Independent, Manchester United is open to taking bids on a group of experienced players during the January transfer window. These talents include free agents Casemiro, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho. 

According to reports, Erik Ten Hag has been dealing with players who played under his predecessors. 

Ten Hag appears to desire a revolution at Old Trafford, bringing in stars that best match his coaching style.

Casemiro's heroics at Old Trafford since joining from Real Madrid have provided MUFC with relief on several occasions. 

However, as a midfielder, the 31-year-old does not meet the standards of manager Erik Ten Hag. Meanwhile, Casemiro appears to be looking for a new adventure at this stage in his career. 

At this point, teams like Al Nassr are interested in the five-time UEFA Champions League winner.

Since Casemiro's free agency became a hot subject, Al Nassr has been at the forefront of the race to sign him. 

According to rumours, Al Nassr would have to spend $54.5 million to ensure Casemiro's reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo. If Al Nassr signs Casemiro, he will become the third Red Devil to transfer to Riyadh, following Cristiano Ronaldo and Alex Telles. 

Besides, Ronaldo and Casemiro have a lengthy history together. Even before they rejoined in Manchester, the two's exploits were immortalised in Real Madrid mythology.

Casemiro's Al Nassr transfer, on the other hand, is in peril. Two more Saudi clubs are also allegedly interested in signing the Brazilian footballer. While nothing is official, it is commonly assumed that Al Nassr's rivals, Al Hilal and Al Ahli, are attempting to sign Casemiro and cement his standing.
