Manchester United have agreed a fee with Real Madrid for their Brazilian defensive midfielder, Casemiro.
The transfer figure is thought to be around £70m, a big fee for a 30 year old midfielder, however the Brazilian comes with a wealth of experience and a trophy laden history, so he was never going to come on the cheap.
