Following the recent rumours saying Casemiro could soon leave Manchester United, there’s an interesting update coming from Brazil.

Journalist Jorge Nicola claims on Youtube that he’s learned something about the midfielder’s personal desire.

The reporter says that a friend of his was recently with Casemiro, and felt a ‘big desire’ from the 31-year-old to play for Bayern Munich.

Nicola adds that there are talks for the Manchester United man to arrive along with Xabi Alonso at the Bundesliga giants next summer. However, it’s not made clear whether that last line, relating to Alonso, is his own information or whether he’s referring to recent reports from the European media.

The journalist doesn’t often bring reports referring to friends or anything like that, so this is a bit of an unusual story for him. He normally uses agents and club officials as his sources, and maybe the friend he refers to is someone from the football market.

Casemiro has made 12 appearances for Manchester United this season, but due to an injury, he hasn’t entered the pitch since the 1st of November.
