The total package deal is a four-year deal for Casemiro, with an option for a further season also confirmed.
The report added that the Real Madrid midfielder has accepted the personal terms on offer from Manchester United and the two clubs are in advanced talks.
Casemiro will reunite with former Real Madrid teammates, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane -- also not forgetting midfielder Fred who is also a Brazilian.
Although Casemiro can be viewed as a short-term solution to Manchester United's problem but it could signal the end of the pursuit of Dutchman Frenkie De Jong who has been their prime target this window.
United currently sit 20th position on the EPL standings with a negative goal after conceding 5 goals and would face last season's runner-up Liverpool on Monday.
With the accelerated deal, Casemiro could be ready to play.
