Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr plot shock double transfer raid on Man Utd and could save ten Hag £500k-a-week in wages

CRISTIANO RONALDO’S Al-Nassr are in line to make a double transfer raid on Manchester United stars Casemiro and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Red Devils are preparing to offload some of their highest-earning stars and a deal with the Saudi side could reduce United’s weekly salary by £500,000.

United’s football director John Murtough flew to Riyadh last month to open talks on potential transfer deals for a number of Red Devil players.

Old Trafford are open to selling their highest-earner Casemiro this summer.

The Brazillian is on £375,000 -a-week and has not played since the start of November due to a hamstring injury,

Ten Hag’s side hopes to recoup as much of the £70million fee paid to Spanish giants Real Madrid last year.

And the nearly 32-year-old could be en route to reuniting with his former Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr.

The Saudi Pro League side are not only eyeing up the midfielder but also defender Wan-Bissaka.

The 26-year-old is currently on £90,000 a week meaning if United sell both stars to the Gulf State they could save nearly half a million a week on their salaries.

After Al-Nassr saw a £20m bid rejected for Tottenham’s right-back Emerson Royal last week they are keen to retry their efforts on Wan-Bissaka.

The Englishman’s future in Manchester is uncertain as the club triggered a 12-month contract extension in December but did not offer the defender a long-term deal.

His agents held contract talks with United chiefs earlier this month but the outcome was unsuccessful.

Even though Wan-Bissaka’s former side Crystal Palace and West Ham have expressed their interest they will find it difficult to match the oil-rich state-owned Saudi side’s offer.

Anthony Martial and Raphael Varane – who earn £250,000 and £340,000 respectively – have also not received a contract extension and are set to leave as free agents in the summer.
