MANCHESTER UNITED have been hit with a transfer blow as they look to cash-in on Casemiro, according to reports.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe is ready to take charge of football operations with him finalising his 25 per cent purchase of the club for £1.3billion.
The billionaire is unhappy the club spent £70million on Casemiro prior to the start of last season.
He supposedly slammed the decision to hand him a four-year deal on a rumoured £350,00-a-week in a meeting with chiefs John Murtough and the now sacked Richard Arnold.
Amid the Brazilian midfielder struggling with form and injuries this season, Ratcliffe supposedly wants to sell Casemiro.
Reports suggest that Saudi Arabian clubs will once again look to raid Premier League teams during the January transfer window.

However, reporter Ben Jacobs claims the player does not want to leave Old Trafford.
This is despite Casemiro having the chance to play with Cristiano Ronaldo again.
The pair are close pals from their days at Real Madrid and Man Utd.
