January 13, “The Telegraph” wrote a long article to disclose
Some of Casemiro’s joining Manchester United, which mentioned that after watching Manchester United’s 0-4 loss to Brentford, he sent a message to his agent and said: “Tell them, I will solve this problem.
Back in August last year, with United trailing 4-0 at half-time against Brentford as ball after ball flew into their net, there were plenty of people inside the Red Devils who worried about Casemiro
Will you reconsider joining?
Back in late June, when United first spoke to Casemiro’s representatives, the player sent a clear signal that he was eager to leave Real Madrid for United.
That interest has not faltered even weeks later, with players waiting patiently in the background while United continue their pursuit of De Jong.
However, just six days after a 2-1 home defeat to Brighton, another disastrous defeat to Brentford turned bad.
So much so that some worried that this might be enough to persuade Casemiro to back down, but their worries were unwarranted.
Casemiro, it turns out, was watching the match at his home in Madrid and messaged his agent: “Tell them and I’ll fix it.”
The defeat has had little impact on him, if anything, and seems to have only deepened his desire to move to Manchester United, with Casemiro already “obsessed” with the idea of a move for days, as one source puts it.
It was reiterated later when the United delegation flew to Madrid.
Finally a deal was reached.
Over dinner, Real Madrid’s top brass revealed they would give Casemiro one last chance the next day to reconsider his stance and stay, but the Brazilian midfielder made it clear that his aim was firmly on the
Manchester, which leaves Real Madrid no choice but to approve the £60m transfer.
It can be said that Casemiro has had a considerable impact since the transfer, and since then, his influence on and off the pitch has been underestimated.
He was the world-class holding midfielder United had aspired to have for more than a decade, and fans took him to heart as much as players felt for the club, the city and the Premier League.
The arrival of Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez played a central role in restoring the connection between players and fans.
Probably no better presentation than at Stamford Bridge last October.
That was when Casemiro equalized in the 94th minute, sparking wild celebrations.
The only disappointment for fans is that they had to wait until Casemiro reached this stage of his career to see such a midfielder in red.
In fact, it was shocking to hear several of Casemiro’s closest confidants claim to have “never been more comfortable or happy in his career”.
He first considered leaving Real Madrid four years ago, when they won the Champions League for the fourth time, at the age of 26, and when the opportunity arose after Real Madrid won the trophy for the fifth time, he was determined to take on a new challenge
With Casemiro in midfield, United defenders Dalot and Luke Shaw were freed, while goalkeeper David de Gea and two centre-backs finally got the protection they craved.
United conceded 0.6 goals and conceded 8.4 shots per game when Casemiro was present, while in his absence they conceded 1.5 goals and conceded 11.5 shots per game.
He is also fundamental to improving United’s attack.
After Casemiro arrived, Souness commented that he “doesn’t make a wide range of passes” and “doesn’t play a role in promoting Manchester United when they have the ball.” Now the former Liverpool captain has become a favorite of Manchester United fans.
object of ridicule.
Perhaps it was because Casemiro played alongside two of the great modern passers of Modric and Toni Kroos at Real Madrid that his own passing prowess was underrated, but it changed the way United played.
Under Casemiro, United averaged 64.1 passes into the final third per game, compared to 51.3 without him, and when the Brazilian was on the pitch, their open crosses, ball possession
And pass success rate and other data will be greatly improved.
The source said Casemiro was impressed by the cheers from the fans at Old Trafford whenever he passed the ball.
United’s recruitment team consulted with his former team-mate Varane about Casemiro as part of a rigorous due diligence process, and the United centre-back’s immediate response to his former Real Madrid team-mate was unequivocal
“If you have the chance to get him, do your best,” Varane said.
The rest of the United team soon realized why Varane was so ebullient.
Casemiro was the first to arrive and the last to leave the training ground.
He was often there early for breakfast with De Gea and Bruno Fernandes and exuded an aura of hyper-professionalism and quiet authority.
Team-mates have often turned to him for advice and have been struck by his desire to navigate the Premier League’s busy schedule and stadium atmosphere.
He studies opponents and their strengths and weaknesses in detail before games and is an avid football fan, usually watching a game every day, which is very rare for a modern player.
He has been taking regular English lessons in and out of the club and feels that improving his command of the language is his most pressing priority.
This dedication is starting to pay off.
Staff were impressed with his knowledge of United’s history and while he was a big Scholes fan, he was
