Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s decision on Casemiro’s Manchester United future has been confirmed, MySportDab reports.
Casemiro has missed weeks of action for Manchester United and is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford due to his depleted game time for the club.
Before completing his Manchester United takeover, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been vocal and critical of Manchester United transfer policies.
The UK billionaire investor was particularly critical of the signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid.
Manchester United splashed £60m to sign Casemiro from Real Madrid, and also made the player one of the highest-paid players at Old Trafford.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s pre-takeover gesticulations has been that of overhaul and streamlining Manchester United transfers, including a clearout of some players.
According to Transfer News Live, the INEOS group are ready to part ways with Casemiro. The decision has been linked to the need to cut overbloated wages of some players.
With his Manchester United future on the balance, Casemiro has been linked to move to Saudi Arabia with Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly pushing for a reunion with the former Real Madrid teammate.
Elsewhere, INEOS are also more likely to part ways with another former Real Madrid star Raphael Varane. Unlike Casemiro, Raphael Varane will run out of his Manchester United contract at the end of the season.
United have refused to trigger his contract extension and may likely cash in on the player this January or allow him leave on a free transfer at the end of next season.
Meanwhile, extension clauses have been triggered on the contracts of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Hannibal Mejbri, and Victor Lindelof.
