With Casemiro on the brink of joining Manchester United, this is definitely more than an upgrade to McFred, it is like playing a career mode on FIFA, where you just search for the player with the highest rating in a position and you splash money to bring him in.

The 30-year-old is undoubtedly one of the best defensive midfielder to have ever played the round leather game and with a move to Manchester United imminent at the peak of his career, Old Trafford may just be welcoming their Messiah.

After spending the 2014/15 season on loan at FC Porto, the Brazilian came back to the Bernabeau to cement his spot at the pivot of the midfield, displacing James Roudriguez from a three-man midfield of James, Modric, Kronos to insert himself and forge the famous ‘Bermuda Triangle’ alongside Kronos and Modric where football is lost.

The famous Bermuda Triangle was first described by Carlo Ancelloti, he said: ”I call Casemiro, Kroos and Modrić the Bermuda Triangle, because the ball disappears there.”

The Bermuda Triangle has been the heart of Real Madrid title winning crusade and Champions League dynasty, winning four (4) Champions League, three (3) La Liga, four (4) Club World Cup, three (3) UEFA Super Cup, and three (3) SuperCopa de Espana in seven seasons of surreal magic.

Casemiro to Manchester United: Why and How

Real Madrid Part

Real Madrid have just signed a new player who has come to understudy and replace Casemiro, a player for the present and the future, Aurélien Tchouameni.

This French talent was signed this summer for a whopping €80 million. He has been tipped to stamp the defensive midfield position of the Los Blancos for the next decade. This means that the plan was for him to play alongside Casemiro for a year or two, develop more, making Casemiro dispensable from next summer.

However, for the right amount, Real Madrid may be willing to speed up the process by letting Casemiro go and instantly deploy the 22-year-old France International to replace him.

Manchester United Part

Manchester United and it’s fans have been frustrated by the infamous McFred partnership in midfield which has consistently made them vulnerable at the back as well as slow down their forward play.

New Manager Erik ten Hag has identified this problem and has been hell bent on bringing his former player, Frankie De Jong to fill that defensive midfield position.

However, with De Jong’s agreement proving difficult, Manchester United have opted to go all out for the best defensive midfielder although older and already at his peak to solve that problem.

The reason for this urgency and desperation to sign a 30-year-old is because Mc Tominay and Fred has continued to haunt them this new season, losing the first two league games, the most recent one being an humiliating 4-0 defeat to Brentford.

Casemiro Part

The 30-year-old has achieved it all at Real Madrid and could be looking for a new challenge as well as a rise in salary as he gets closer to the end of his career.

The Offer

Manchester United will submit an official proposal of €60 million fee plus €10 million add-ons and Real Madrid are expected to accept the offer per Fabrizio Romano.

The Red Devils are expected to almost double his current €190,000 per week wages and give him a contract till June 2026 with an option to extend by a year.

What will Casemiro bring to Manchester United

It is no news that the red part of Manchester have suffered greatly in their defensive midfield position making them no competition to their rivals.

Casemiro will serve as a formidable shield to the defense in his positioning, tackles, stamina, interception, and ruthlessness.

The Brazilian is also very good on the ball, making the possession and playing from the back easier. He will also help the Red Devils read the game better and control the tempo alongside Eriksen.

The question is who doesn’t want the best defensive midfielder in the world?
