Casemiro has hired a private jet to fly to Manchester today to complete his move to United.
Yesterday both clubs confirmed that they had reached an agreement to transfer the five-times Champions League winner, with just a medical and visa to be resolved before the deal can be completed.
And according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, that medical could be set to take place today.
“Been told Casemiro has private flight to Manchester now scheduled on Saturday,” Romano tweeted last night.
“Tomorrow will be time for medical tests, then visa to be sorted and official unveiling.”

Meanwhile the midfield general has bid an emotional farewell to los Merengues, saying:
“I lived the most marvelous story that I could have ever imagined. I hope to one day return to what will always be my home.
“Even in a thousand lifetimes I will not be able to give back to Real Madrid all that you have given me. Forever… Hala Madrid!”
He vivido la historia más maravillosa que jamás pensé. Espero volver algún día a la que siempre será mi casa. Ni en mil vidas podré devolveros al @realmadrid y al madridismo todo lo que me habéis dado. Por siempre… ¡Hala Madrid! 🤍💜 pic.twitter.com/VH91DA3HJW

Casemiro is a serial winner who will transform United’s defensive midfield department. His transfer will not be completed in time for him to face Liverpool on Monday night. His debut for the Red Devils will probably be against Southampton at St. Marys stadium a week today.
