Saudi Pro League clubs are refusing to meet Manchester United’s £30 million asking price for Casemiro ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 32-year-old has just finished his second season at United and came under fire for his performances in a disappointing campaign under Erik ten Hag.

It’s understood that United are open to selling Casemiro this summer, with the Saudi Pro League the most likely destination for the midfielder.

According to Goal Brazil, United are demanding a £30m fee for the Brazilian, who joined in a £70m deal from Real Madrid in August 2022 and is now the club’s highest earner with a contract worth around £350,000 a week.

Al-Ahli and Al-Qadisiyah, who won promotion to the Saudi Pro League this season and have already made an offer to make Jose Mourinho their technical director, have registered their interest in signing Casemiro.

Casemiro, who was left out of United’s FA Cup final squad by Ten Hag, is now set to hold talks with United’s hierarchy for clarification over his future this summer.

Speaking earlier this month, Casemiro gave no indication that he is looking to leave Old Trafford this summer and hit back at pundits who have suggested he is now too old to play in the Premier League.

‘I feel very well, very well,’ Casemiro said.

‘I’m really well, I feel healthy, with energy and the same mentality I always had.

‘I guess people end up talking about the age factor, but it’s been proven. Recently, our friend Thiago Silva, at the age of 39 coming here and showing that, yes, you can play. The previous Ballon d’Or winners were over 34.

‘At Man City, there’s Kevin De Bruyne. [Mohamed] Salah at Liverpool. I think age is not an issue, it is not a factor in this, but analysing one’s game and knowing about everything that is happening around the game.

‘These are people who analyse football well, who see what’s happening, who know what’s happening, analysing not the age.

‘But I’m well, I’m happy, living every day I get to play here. As I usually say, Manchester United gave me what I wanted. This joy of being able to enjoy the game, enjoy the Premier League.

‘So, I’m happy to be here at Manchester United and enjoying the game.’
