With Casemiro struggling for form and his future uncertain, the Red Devils will surely have to begin looking for a new midfield anchor, one that is young enough and will grow with the team.
SL Benfica midfielder Joao Neves has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer but will be very expensive, and it looks like the Red Devils will miss out on one of their cheaper targets, Brazilian midfielder Andre.
United set to miss out
According to the Daily Mail, another Premier League club leading the race for the Fluminense midfielder.
That club is Marco Silva’s Fulham, who are reportedly keen on completing the agreement to sign the 22-year-old sooner rather than later, which would be another blow for the Red Devils.
With his release clause being set at €30 million (£26 million), United could miss out on yet another South American bargain, having already missed out on Julian Alvarez a year ago and Moises Caicedo back in 2020.

According to the report, the only chance of the deal to take Andre to Fulham collapses would be if another side stump up even more cash for the 22-year-old. The Red Devils, alongside Liverpool and Arsenal, are believed to still be keen on the Brazilian.
