The Red Devils have been desperately attempting to bolster their midfield and they appear to be close to completing a deal for the Brazilian star.
Paul Hirst of the Times has reported that United have agreed a fee of €60m+ €10m in add-ons with Real Madrid.
Hirst also reports that he has agreed a four-year deal with an option of a further year.
Neil Custis of the Sun claims that Casemiro will earn a whopping £350,000-per-week at Old Trafford.
The Premier League giants hope to complete his signing before their trip to Liverpool next Monday.
Casemiro will be on a hefty salary at United, but how does his wages compare to the world’s highest-paid centre-midfielders?

Casemiro will become the fifth highest-paid centre midfielder in the world if his Man United move goes through.
Kroos, Modric and Kimmich also earn over £300,000-per-week at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively.
Barcelona currently have four of the world’s 17 highest-paid centre midfielders: De Jong, Busquets, Pjanic and Kessie.
While it’s perhaps surprising that Ndombele and Rakitic are included among the world’s 20 highest-paid players in their position.
