The girlfriend of Real Madrid star Federico Valverde has sent an expletive WhatsApp message to Casemiro ahead of his move to Manchester United. Casemiro has agreed to join the Red Devils but it has not gone down well with everyone.
United are set to pay £60million for the Brazil midfielder on an initial four-year contract. It will bring to an end a nine-year stay at the Bernabeu for the 30-year-old.
He has won five Champions Leagues and three La Liga titles during an illustrious time at Real. But Valverde’s partner clearly does not want Casemiro to go.
Mina Bonino, who is also a sports journalist, has posted a screenshot of a WhatsApp message she sent to Casemiro on Friday afternoon. The message translates to: “Don’t leave, you s*** b*****d.”
She posted the tweet just minutes after both United and Real had confirmed an agreement had been reached over Casemiro. The player is set to travel to Manchester this weekend to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical.

Casemiro has not signed in time to be available for United’s match against rivals Liverpool on Monday. He could make his debut when Erik ten Hag’s side visit Southampton next Saturday.
United have lost their opening two matches of the season to Brighton and Brentford. Ten Hag will continue to scour the market for new signings before the window shuts on September 1.
