Manchester United manager Eric ten Hag is close to completing his fourth signing deal this summer, with Brazil midfielder Casemiro photographed inside Old Trafford ahead of this evening’s clash with Liverpool.
United face arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Monday in what should be the Netherlands’ newly appointed coach’s toughest game of the season so far.
The 30-year-old is considered one of the best defensive midfielders in the world and will add much-needed support to the struggling Red Devils.
In their first two games of the 2022/23 season, the 20-times title winner posted embarrassing defeats against Crystal Palace, Brighton and Hove Albion, and Ten Hag will make sure that doesn’t happen again tonight.

However, despite Casemiro being filmed inside the Theater of Dreams, he has not been able to secure his place in United’s squad ahead of tonight’s game and will have to support his new team from the stands.
The five-time Champions League winner is expected to complete his move in the coming days and could make his debut as a red devil against Southampton on Saturday.
