Manchester United midfielder Casemiro is still thinking about a potential move to Saudi Arabia to close out his career.

That’s according to journalist Álvaro de Grado, who reports that retirement in Arabia is ‘on Casemiro’s mind.’

He explains that the Brazilian is about to turn 32-years-old and as such his future at Manchester United ‘is not guaranteed’.

While he remains a regular under Erik ten Hag now that he’s back fit, the reality is that he is now past his peak and has been overshadowed by the impressive performances from Kobbie Mainoo.

He initially joined Manchester United on a four-year deal with an optional one, but he has only managed a year and a half so far and it seems unlikely he’ll see out the remainder of that deal.

Indeed, last summer the Red Devils had a proposal from Saudi Arabia that would have been worth close to €70m.

That deal never happened but a move to Saudi Arabia ‘is on Casemiro’s mind’ as it would allow him to sign one last big contract in his career.

A move in the summer transfer window remains a possibility and the interest from the Saudi Pro League ‘remains valid’, so there is a deal there to be done.

Whether one is offered remains to be seen but the Manchester United man is thinking about it, nonetheless.
