Manchester United may sell Casemiro and Raphael Varane in January as part of Erik ten Hag’s massive squad purge.

After a dismal 2023–24 season, the Red Devils could be eliminated from the Champions League this month in addition to their waning top-four push in the Premier League.

According to reports, Ten Hag is open to offers for important players, and Casemiro and Varane may be on his possible exit list.

Although injuries have plagued Varane during his two and a half years at United, the French centre back has not been included in the starting lineup in recent weeks, even though he is back to full fitness.

Although Casemiro is out of commission for the time being, the Brazilian’s play has declined following an outstanding debut season at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag is aware that both players are over 30 and have little market value in Europe, but he leaves open the possibility of a transfer to the Saudi Pro League.

The former Real Madrid pair’s move to the Middle East would be their last professional move, as it is rumoured that they are both unhappy with their current roles in Manchester.

In addition to three La Liga titles apiece, Casemiro and Varane shared five Champions League victories in Madrid.
