Casemiro only needed to know three things before agreeing to join Man United

Casemiro ‘only needed to know where he would live, train and play to be convinced to join Man United’… with the Brazilian midfielder’s straightforward approach to his £60 million move, leading the Reds Devils were sure they had drawn ‘a leader’

  • Casemiro came over from Real Madrid to Manchester United for sixty million euros in the summer
  • Before joining, all he wanted to know was where he would live, train and play
  • His straightforward approach convinced United that they had signed ‘a leader’
  • The Brazilian seems to fit in seamlessly in his first months at United

Casemiro, according to reports, only needed the answers to three questions before deciding to join Manchester United in the summer.

The Brazilian midfielder’s £60 million move to Old Trafford in August was met with skepticism from some fans, as they questioned whether the transfer was motivated purely by money.

The move certainly raised eyebrows as Casemiro came just three months after winning his fifth Champions League with Real Madrid. Leaving the European champions to move to a club that would play in the Europa League seemed like a strange choice to some spectators.

Still, Casemiro didn’t need much convincing and just wanted to know where he would live, train and play, according to the Manchester evening news.

The 30-year-old was clearly happy with the answers he got when he signed on the dotted line, and his no-nonsense approach to the deal led United to believe they had signed ‘a leader’ in the dressing room.

Casemiro has yet to wear the armband at Old Trafford, with Harry Maguire captaining the club, while Bruno Fernandes has taken over for much of this season when Maguire had yet to be chosen.

Cristiano Ronaldo was even given responsibility for United’s trip to Aston Villa earlier this month ahead of his stellar interview with Piers Morgan that led to the termination of his contract by mutual consent.

In that interview, Ronaldo lamented the lack of progress at the club since he first left in 2009, explaining how facilities had not improved, leaving United behind their rivals.

But Casemiro seems unbothered by this and has been letting his football do the talking since joining United.

After initially being brought into the team by Erik Ten Hag from the bench, Casemiro has become a permanent fixture in the starting line-up of the Red Devils.

He has started United’s last seven top-flight games since their 6-3 thrashing against Manchester City, and the team have lost just one of those games.

The tenacious midfielder has also shown there is more to his game than just stopping play, as he scored a last-minute equalizer against Chelsea in October.

He is also a vital part of Brazil’s line-up, scoring a fine strike in their victory against Switzerland on Monday, sealing the South American nation’s passage to the last 16 of the tournament.

Casemiro was rested after Brazil’s shock defeat to Cameroon on Friday, but looks almost certain to return as South Korea battles for a place in the quarter-finals.
