Talk of a medical on Friday appears premature, which means he would not be registered in time for Monday’s clash with rivals Liverpool.
United sit bottom of the Premier League after their back-to-back defeats in the first two season openers. They suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Brighton and later, Brentford thrashed them 4-0 in away game.
Casemiro was the former team-mate of Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane. He is a five-time Champions League winner with Madrid.
