Manchester United Transfer News: Thomas Tuchel Wants Casemiro

Manchester United Transfer News: According to reports, Manchester United midfielder Casemiro is manager Thomas Tuchel’s top target for a summer transfer. German media source Kicker (via FourFourTwo) reports that Tuchel is interested in bringing in experienced leaders like the 31-year-old Brazilian to stabilize the uneasy Bayern locker room.

A defensive midfielder to pair alongside Joshua Kimmich, Bayern Munich seems to have settled on Casemiro. They lost 4-1 on aggregate to Manchester City in the Champions League quarterfinals, so they want to improve their defence. Tuchel doesn’t appear phased by Casemiro’s prospective market worth or his importance to Manchester United.

Bayern Munich is now in second place in the Bundesliga, one point behind Borussia Dortmund, with just five games remaining in the season. Bayern have not qualified for Europe or the DFB-Pokal since Tuchel replaced Julian Nagelsmann in early April. So, the league is their only shot at a trophy this year.

With Casemiro anchoring their midfield, Manchester United hopes to return to the Champions League next season. The Red Devils are also in the FA Cup final, looking to win their second trophy of the season, but they will have to go through Manchester City to do it.

Manchester United Transfer News: Thomas Tuchel wants Casemiro

Casemiro has been a key cog in Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United squad since he was acquired from Real Madrid for £70 million last summer. He has been instrumental in the club’s success, as seen by their February Carabao Cup victory, their run to the FA Cup final, and their push for a Champions League berth.

When asked about his plans for the forthcoming summer transfer window, Erik ten Hag said that he would prioritize strengthening the depth of his roster at important positions. United, under Ten Hag’s tutelage, also has a good chance of placing in the top four. The club’s financial status will improve, making it more desirable to prospective new players.
