Manchester United has been adrift for a couple of seasons. He looks for the north and does not find it. Ten Hag, the coach in charge of refloating the ship, encountered Cristiano Ronaldo’s problem shortly after arriving and does not seem to find the right path. The solution is to sign and that is what the leaders of the English club are doing. In fact, emissaries of United are in Madrid with different routes open.
The names, as the English press points out, do not stop appearing. In a week, it has gone from Morata to Aubameyang, to later be Raúl de Tomás and also the rojiblanco Matheus Cunha, as options for the position of center forward. It is not the only one that worries, since there is talk of reinforcing the midfield after the departure of Pogba and Matic. Given the complexity of the open operation with De Jong, from Old Trafford they are still in search and now they think of Casemiro as a possible reinforcement for the current bottom team in the Premier.
Real Madrid has the Brazilian and at the moment they have not received any proposal. For Ancelotti he is a fixture, in addition to having a special complicity with him, but no one at the white club, no one escapes market movements. As they always say from Valdebebas: “you always have to be attentive until the last day”. And so they are after a few more days focused on the start of the competition.
The white club has seven midfielders and, as was shown against Almería, all of them have the ability to occupy different positions. In fact, Kroos came to occupy the position of midfielder before Casemiro set foot on the pitch, with Tchouameni making his first start in LaLiga.
A legendary player for 6 million
Casemiro arrived at Real Madrid from Sao Paulo in 2013. Ramon Martínez moved quickly and secured a loan with a purchase option, which was executed after making his first team debut against Betis under the guidance of José Mourinho. Six million euros cost the definitive incorporation of him. He was loaned to Porto to return in the summer of 2015… and until now.
While United have priority in the centre-forward position, they are not ruling out more signings and Casemiro’s name is beginning to be heard. There is no news for Valdebebas, but there are still two weeks to go and the market always holds surprises in recent days.
