Casemiro was willing to join Manchester United from Real Madrid knowing fully the state of things around the club. The player is set to face a similar wage cut as that of Cristiano Ronaldo did last season, should United fail to qualify for Champions League football.
Casemiro’s reported wages are around £375,000-a-week, having been signed from Real Madrid for a potential £70 million fee.
Last season United failed to make it to the Champions League qualifying spots in the league and as a result, most of the squad took a wage cut, including Ronaldo.
Ronaldo’s mammoth £480,000-a-week salary was said to have been reduced by 25%.
