asemiro arrived at Manchester United on Monday afternoon ahead of the official announcement of his transfer from Real Madrid.
A £70m deal has been agreed for the 30-year-old midfielder to move to Old Trafford after agreeing to move to Erik ten Hag’s ailing side.
It’s been a busy day for Casemiro after holding a press conference in the Spanish capital in the morning, at one point wiping tears from his eyes during an emotional farewell to Madrid.
The Brazilian then flew to Manchester, before heading to Old Trafford just over three hours before the derby with Liverpool.
Casemiro will watch the Premier League game from the stands after admitting his disappointment at not being able to play against the Reds.
United are expected to announce the £70m signing soon.
“If it were up to me, I would play against Liverpool tonight,” he told reporters earlier on Monday. “I can not wait.”
