casemiro abandonment real Madrid after almost a decade of glories and with 18 titles under his belt. The Brazilian decided to change the air and headed towards Manchester Utd for an amount of 70 million euros. In statistics, the signing was one of the best of the season and has greatly influenced the team. However, this does not seem to fall in the best way to historical as Gary Nevillewho disagreed with his signing.
“I think Ten Hag is not going to sign big names. I think she will want the youngest and hungriest ones that are still growing. And Casemiro surpasses that a bit. Antony and Lisandro Martínez are younger and hungrier.”he mentioned in an interview with Sky Sports.
“I think that’s the type of player you’ll want to add to this team instead of saying, ‘Oh, Kylian Mbappé is available.’ Casemiro? We all said it, £60m or £70m transfer plus £20m a year for him for five years is a £170m investment. It’s too much. He is not a smart or cunning signing ”he added.
With a six-month stay, Casemiro’s influence is notorious because many fans already see him as a ‘hero’ at Old Trafford. After five years of drought, Manchester United has won a local title and the Brazilian is one of the main architects.
Last weekend, Erik ten Hag’s side clinched the Carabao Cup at the hands of Newcastle, with the Brazilian winning at Wembley. Author of the first goal and voted ‘MVP’ of the final, the man from São Paulo won his first trophy with the red devils and the 21st of his career.

United, five years later, lifted a title again, the sixth League Cup in its history, three behind Liverpool, which leads this competition with nine gimped. The ‘Red Devils’ tie with Aston Villa and Chelsea, who have five each.
It is the first stone of a quartet of titles that seems impossible, but of which United already has the first leg. Now there is the Premier, in which it is eight points behind the leader, the FA Cup – it is in the round of 16 – and the Europa League, in which it is also in the round of 16.
