Cristiano Ronaldo singled out three Manchester United players as ‘top professionals,’ and now there are plans within the club to sell one of them.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s shoutout to three Manchester United players as “top professionals” in a controversial interview last November has taken an unexpected turn. One of those players, Casemiro, might be leaving the club after just 18 months.
According to reports from the Mail Online, Al Nassr, Ronaldo’s current team, is interested in Casemiro. The Saudi Pro League side is considering making a big offer for the Brazilian midfielder, who currently earns over £375,000 per week at Manchester United. This potential move is part of a larger interest in United’s players, including defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
John Murtough, the football director, has reportedly traveled to Saudi Arabia to explore the possibility of these transfers. If these deals go through, United is likely looking for significant fees for both Casemiro and Wan-Bissaka. It seems Ronaldo is backing the move for Casemiro, hinting at a possible change in the dynamics of Manchester United’s squad.
