Manchester United are reportedly looking into signing Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro or AC Milan’s Frank Kessie to strengthen in the defensive midfield department.
The Red Devils could do with bringing in upgrade on the likes of Fred and Nemanja Matic, who have looked unconvincing at the heart of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s midfield in recent times.
Man Utd have been strongly linked with West Ham’s Declan Rice by the Independent, but there’s no doubt Casemiro or Kessie could be fine alternatives, and Don Balon claim the pair are on United’s radar.
It is still unclear which player MUFC will prioritise. However, Kessie is on the verge of becoming a free agent at San Siro and might be the most realistic target.
United aren’t the only team being linked with Kessie at the moment, with Calciomercato also claiming he’s a target for Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain.
Milan would be very disappointed to lose such an important player. Casemiro is an unsung hero who plays an important role at Real.
Both look like they would fit well in the Premier League. United fans would certainly accept them as alternatives to Rice, if that move proves too ambitious.
