Initially praised for his impact, Casemiro’s form has plummeted this season, raising speculation about a potential move, with Saudi Arabia being a serious option.

The 75-times capped Brazilian midfielder joined United from Real Madrid for £70m in the summer of 2022, initially showcasing promising performances.

However, injuries and a dip in form have diminished his impact, prompting criticism and questioning of the wisdom in such a signing.

Behind the scenes, new investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe has reportedly expressed concerns about big-money deals for aging players, signaling a shift in United’s transfer strategy.

The club is expected to focus on young, upcoming talents who can develop and provide a long-term return on investment.

Neville, seemingly aligning with Ratcliffe’s perspective, now contends that the Casemiro signing should never have occurred, labeling it a short-term move that will cost the club in the long run.

As United undergoes a potential shift in leadership and sporting direction, the era of signing experienced players like Casemiro might be coming to an end.
