Casemiro is in contact with Brazil team-mate Neymar about a possible summer move to Manchester United, according to reports.
The Red Devils are eyeing a swoop for the PSG forward ahead of Erik ten Hag’s second campaign, and Casemiro is playing his part too.
Ten Hag wants attacking reinforcements this summer after struggling for goals in his maiden season in the Premier League.

And United could pounce on Neymar’s uncertain situation at the French club to provide him with heavyweight firepower at the club.
According to L’Equipe, United have entered discussions over a deal for the 31-year-old, either permanent or on loan. And Casemiro is said to be ‘pushing hard’ to unite with his international pal at Old Trafford.
PSG’s Neymar would add to the growing Brazilian contingent in M16, of which Fred, Antony and Alex Telles are also members.
After a sticky end to the campaign in France, Neymar is reportedly open to a new challenge next season once he returns from his ankle injury.
Around 50 PSG ultras went to Neymar’s house at the start of May to demand that he leave the Ligue 1 team, making him feel unwelcome at the club.
And it’s claimed that Neymar would prefer a Premier League move, and Manchester United should also have Champions League football on offer.
Chelsea have also been linked with the Brazil international in recent months. And Todd Boehly has proved he’s not afraid to spend big since buying the West London club last year.
