The saying goes that in football, everything goes very fast. Casemiro’s transfer to Old Trafford is another symbol of this. Revealed at the start of the week, the hypothesis of a departure from the Brazilian midfielder is confirmed. Fabrizio Romano announces that Manchester United and Real Madrid have reached an agreement for the transfer of Auriverde to England. The Red Devils will pay 60 million euros, to which may be added 10 million bonuses, to secure the services of the sentry.
Landed in Europe in 2013 from São Paulo FC, Casemiro left the club with which he won everything to join the shaky Mancunian ship, currently in full reconstruction. The 30-year-old midfielder will sign until 2026, with an option for an additional season with the Mancunians. He is expected this weekend in England to undergo his medical examination and sign his contract.

Ancelotti has already prepared for it
Confirmed by the Italian journalist, Casemiro’s transfer was accepted earlier today by Carlo Ancelotti and Madrid’s decision makers. Present at a press conference this Friday noon, the Italian coach had confirmed the departure of his sentry. “I discussed with him. He wants to try a new challenge and we understand his decision. For what he did and the person he is, we have to respect that wish..”
Exit therefore the fantastic Casemiro-Kroos-Modric trio. Taulier of the Madrid eleven since his return from loan from Porto in 2014-2015, Casemiro will leave a big void in the merengue collective. Not enough to worry the “Mister”, decided to rely on the forces present and who swept away the hypothesis of an additional arrival while the name of Bruno Guimarães circulated in Madrid. “There is no going back. (…) We have six midfielders, that will be enough for the season. And these six players are very good.”
Because no, even if Casemiro is going to sail to other skies, the Casa Blanca remains well supplied in the middle. And there is no doubt that Aurélien Tchouaméni and Edouardo Camavinga could take on even more responsibilities in the days and weeks to come. Carlo Ancelotti also has the ambition to adopt a double pivot in front of the defense which could make the happiness of the two French internationals.
