In football transfer news, Real Madrid are open to the sale of Casemiro to Manchester United in a potential deal worth in excess of £60m.

Talks are ongoing between the two clubs with United receiving enough encouragement to give them belief that a deal is possible.

The 30-year-old is greatly appreciated by Real boss Carlo Ancelotti. However, Casemiro is reportedly not viewed as indispensable given the wealth of options the Champions League holders have in the centre of the pitch.

Luka Modric signed a contract extension to 2023 and Toni Kroos also provides pedigreed experience to mesh with younger talents, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Federico Valverde.

Whether Casemiro is actually minded to exit the Bernabeu for Europa League football at Old Trafford is the unknown, even with the prospect of doubling his salary.

He is considering his options given he needs game time ahead of the World Cup and has been tempted by United's proposal.

Real have stressed the final decision is Casemiro's to make.The former Sao Paulo man has played over 300 times for Madrid and has been part of five Champions League successes.

Sky Sports News has been told Manchester United were prepared to pay £67.6m for Ajax forward Antony.

Intermediaries involved in the negotiation were informed Ajax would not accept the offer and want to keep the winger.

United are currently deciding whether to make an improved bid, but PSV Eindhoven's Cody Gakpo is seen as a more realistic option.

Recruiting a forward is likely to be addressed in the final week while the club focus on signing a midfielder.
