Al-Nassr are keen on bringing Manchester United midfielder Casemiro to the Saudi Pro League at the behest of Cristiano Ronaldo, according to reports.

Manchester United brought Casemiro into the club from Real Madrid in the summer of 2022 and the Brazilian midfielder was arguably the most transformative signing in Erik ten Hag’s first season at the helm.

There are pros and cons to the idea of losing Casemiro but ultimately the midfielder’s experience and know-how when it comes to winning trophies is vital for a team that is severely lacking leaders.
