Ancelotti stated during a press conference that Casemiro is negotiating a transfer. He didn't mention United by name.

We must respect his wishes because of what he has accomplished for the club and the kind of person he is, according to Ancelotti.

He is still a Real Madrid player, but there are currently negotiations taking place.

But it's obvious that he wants to leave, and if he does so and comes to a deal, we have the resources to replace him.

The 30-year-old Casemiro, who is considered as one of the best holding midfielders in the world, has been a member of the Madrid team since 2013.

If Casemiro completes his transfer to United, Ancelotti stated that the team would not try to sign a second midfielder.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti acknowledged that Casemiro wants to join Manchester United, claiming the midfielder seeks "a fresh challenge" outside of the Bernabeu.
