Erik ten Hag selects Premier League star to replace Casemiro.
Romeo Lavia, a star for Southampton, is a favorite of Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag. Additionally, he sees the midfielder as a potential long-term replacement for Casemiro.
Real Madrid star Casemiro was purchased by the Red Devils for £60 million last summer, and he has had a successful first season at Old Trafford.
Although Casemiro is undoubtedly the first name on the roster, the Brazilian is 30 years old.
Upon his arrival, Casemiro agreed to a four-year contract. Due to the decline in performances when Casemiro is absent from the lineup, Ten Hag is already considering recruiting a new midfielder this summer.

Romeo Lavia, a teenage prodigy from Southampton, has been mentioned as a transfer target for Chelsea. New rumors, however, suggest that Manchester United intends to bring him to Old Trafford.
According to a story from journalist Ben Jacobs from last month, Chelsea and Arsenal may be able to acquire Lavia this summer. However, he does, add that Southampton would prefer not to trade him to the Blues since they value him at £55 million.
Romeo Lavia, who is only 19 years old, is having an outstanding season in his first year at St. Mary’s. Before joining Manchester City in 2020 and Southampton two years later, Lavia attended the Anderlecht Academy.
The city included a repurchase clause and a 20% sell-on fee to the contract. Lavia is, nevertheless, already getting notice from all around Europe.
Ten Hag, according to the Independent, is monitoring Lavia’s progress and views the midfielder as a long-term alternative for Casemiro.
This summer, United will focus on other things. Ten Hag is eager to add a top center forward, a right back, and an experienced midfielder.
However, a protracted takeover of the club could have a major impact.
There will be a third round of proposals due on Friday at 10:00 p.m.
Sheikh Jassim has outbid his primary challenger, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, for 100% control of the club and promised to pay off the team’s debt.
Ratcliffe has, however, given the Glazers the option of staying at the team as long as he holds the majority controlling share.
