Manchester United travel to Merseyside on Saturday to face Everton just days after the Toffees were deducted ten points for breaching the Premier League’s financial regulations. 

The Red Devils have endured a difficult season so far, losing nine of 18 matches, but currently boast the best form in the top flight with four wins from their last five games in the competition.

Despite that run of form, it appears that United could soon sell one of their most senior players.

As reported by TalkSPORT, the Manchester outfit could consider cashing in on midfielder Casemiro.

The Brazilian joined the Red Devils from Spanish side Real Madrid last summer, having made more than 330 appearances for the La Liga side, as well as winning no fewer than 18 trophies.

Casemiro has attracted interest from clubs in the Saudi Pro League

Since arriving in Manchester, the 31-year-old has made 63 appearances across all competitions.

The report claims that clubs in the Saudi Arabian Pro League are interested in Casemiro, and that United could considering selling the player if an offer is received.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who is likely to soon become minority owner of the club and take charge of sporting affairs, is said to be open to the prospect of selling the Brazil international in order to fund a rebuild of the current squad.

The midfielder – who cost United around £60 million last summer and is one of their highest earners – is currently contracted to the club until the summer of 2026.

Despite playing regularly last term and helping United to a third-placed finish in the Premier League, Casemiro’s form has dipped this season.

He has made just eight league appearances so far this term, and is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury.
