Deadline for Manchester United to complete Casemiro transfer for him to make debut vs Liverpool FC

Deadline for Manchester United to complete Casemiro transfer for him to make debut vs Liverpool FC

 Manchester United  must complete the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro and register him by 12 p.m. on Friday in order for him to make his debut against Liverpool on Monday evening at Old Trafford.

According to the Manchester Evening News, United, who have been linked with a number of players ahead of the transfer window closing in less than a fortnight, have approached Madrid about signing the Brazil international.

The Reds are desperate to bolster their midfield options ahead of the September 1 deadline, and the 30-year-old has risen to the top of their wish list.

United are said to be making progress in their efforts to bring him to Old Trafford, and talks with his representatives are ongoing. 

According to reports, the Brazilian sees playing in the Premier League as a challenge he has always wanted to try.

United will have to pay a high fee to entice him away from the Bernabeu, where he is under contract until the summer of 2025.

However, he is regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, so the money would be well spent.

If United are serious about getting him in as soon as possible and want him to play against Liverpool on Monday, they must secure his signature and register him with the Premier League by Friday at midday.

According to Premier League rules, any new signing must be registered by midday on Friday, prior to the latest round of weekend fixtures.

The Premier League rule book states: Subject to the provisions of Rule V.1, the deadline for receipt by the Board of all duly completed documents required by these Rules to effect the registration of a Player shall be 12 noon on the last Working Day before the date of the first League Match in which the Club making the application intends him to play, save that the international transfer certificate and evidence of eligibility to take up employment in the United Kingdom (in both cases if applicable) may be provided thereafter (but must be provided before the Player is eligible to play for a Club in a League Match).

As the rules state that a club must register a new signing by 12 noon on the last working day before the date of the match they intend for him to make his debut in, it means that United must complete the signing of Casemiro by lunchtime on Friday. They cannot carry it forward to Monday and give him his debut that evening.

Casemiro, who helped Madrid win the UEFA Super Cup last week in Helsinki, started the Spanish giants’ La Liga opener against Almeria last weekend on the bench. He came on in the closing stages, as Carlo Ancelotti’s side won 2-1.
