Casemiro: What he brings to United
The Brazilian and his amazing qualities joins Manchester United
Casemiro is joining Manchester United from Real Madrid for a stunning fee of 60M Euros plus 10 million in add-ons with a four-season contract that pays 15M to the midfielder.
"I have spoken with him. He wants to have a new challenge. The club understands that, we have to respect that wish", told Carlo Ancelotti to the media at a press conference that announced the departure of the Brazilian.
The 30-year-old joined the Spanish side in 2013 from Sao Paulo. At that time, los Blancos paid 6M for him because he was only considered a project for the future, but no one knew how good that investment would result.
Nine years later, says goodbye to Real Madrid, where he became a key part of its history and a must-starter in one of their most successful teams, having played more than 200 games and reaching five Champions Leagues titles.
Everyone knows how good he is. His so many qualities include omnipresence, as he seems to be everywhere on the pitch, work rate, because he plays every game and runs in every one of them like it's the last one, and defensive skills, being considered by many the best defensive-midfielder in the world.
Among that, he has the courage that characterizes South Americans and that most Premier League players don't have. If Casemiro considers a tackle is needed to be done, he does it without caring about a player against him or the team.
All those positives with his experience in Europe maid Ten Hag asked for him, as the Dutchman considers Carlos Enrique to be the solution to United's midfield and low attitude problems that made the team have such a negative start in this new season.
