Neymar has indicated his willingness to join forces with Casemiro at Manchester United as speculation grows over a potential move to Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old is reportedly contemplating leaving Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) to seek a new challenge after spending six successful years at the Parc des Princes since his departure from Barcelona in 2017.

According to L’Equipe, United has already initiated “active negotiations” for Neymar, with PSG open to either a permanent transfer or a loan deal that includes an option for the Red Devils to buy him in the summer of 2024.

It is also rumored that Casemiro has been in regular contact with Neymar, urging his compatriot to make the switch to Old Trafford at the end of the current season.

Casemiro, who joined United from Real Madrid last summer, has quickly become one of Erik ten Hag’s key players, bringing added quality to the team’s midfield.

In response, Neymar took to Twitter and hailed Casemiro as “the best midfielder in the world for a long time.”

Casemiro humbly responded to Neymar’s compliments, acknowledging that determining the best players in the world is a subjective matter.

He stated in an interview with Terra, “I’m glad that people compare me, that I’m part of that list and that people remember my name, but this criterion I leave to the people, to journalists, to whom football debates. I don’t like to put myself in this place or even think I’m [the best].”

The prospect of Neymar and Casemiro playing together at Old Trafford next season remains uncertain. However, ongoing discussions between Manchester United and PSG suggest progress in the background as they work towards a potential deal.

Casemiro’s role in the team could be pivotal in persuading Neymar to make the move to the Red Devils, where he would also join fellow Brazilians Fred and Antony.
