Casemiro, the defensive midfielder who shone for Real Madrid, continues to be highly sought after by Saudi Arabian football.

According to GOAL, in addition to the longstanding interest from Al Nassr, which includes Luís Castro, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Otávio, two more teams have now entered the race for the 32-year-old Brazilian international: Al Ahli Jeddah and Al Qadisiyah.

The mentioned source indicates that both clubs would offer a higher salary than what Casemiro currently earns at Manchester United. Currently, Casemiro is one of the highest earners at Old Trafford, reflecting his significant contribution to the team since joining the Premier League giants. His experience, leadership, and defensive capabilities make him an attractive prospect for the ambitious Saudi clubs.

Al Nassr, Al Ahli Jeddah, and Al Qadisiyah are reportedly ready to make substantial financial commitments to secure Casemiro's services. These offers are part of a broader strategy by Saudi Arabian clubs to attract top talent from Europe and enhance the competitiveness of their domestic league.

However, Manchester United is not willing to let Casemiro go without a substantial transfer fee. The club values his presence in the squad, both for his on-field performance and his influence in the locker room. As a result, Manchester United is expected to demand more than 30 million euros for his transfer, a figure that reflects Casemiro's importance to the team and his market value.

The potential move of Casemiro to Saudi Arabia would mark a significant shift in his career. Having won numerous titles with Real Madrid, including multiple Champions League trophies, and proving his worth in the Premier League, a transfer to the Saudi Pro League would be a new chapter for the seasoned midfielder.

As negotiations unfold, it remains to be seen whether Casemiro will make the move to Saudi Arabia or continue his journey with Manchester United. The interest from Saudi clubs highlights the increasing financial power and ambition of football in the region, aiming to attract world-class players to boost the profile and quality of their league.

Fans and analysts alike will be watching closely to see where Casemiro's future lies, as his decision could have significant implications for all parties involved, including the strengthening of Saudi Arabian football's global appeal.
