” He wants to leave. Carlo Ancelotti confirmed Casemiro’s departure wishes during a press conference on Friday. Arrived at Real Madrid in 2012, the 30-year-old Brazilian midfielder wants to see something else after having won everything alongside Karim Benzema’s partners: “I discussed it with him. He wants to try a new challenge, the club understands that. There are negotiations, it’s not official, he is still our player but his desire to leave is clear. It must be accepted with the greatest respect. All of Real Madrid has a lot going for him. The players have understood this. »
As announced by the English press, Casemiro and Manchester United have come to an agreement. The midfielder is expected to join the Red Devils, in turmoil after a disastrous start to the season. Casemiro would, according to Marca, say goodbye to his Real Madrid teammates this Friday and should go to England during the day or during the weekend to pass his medical examination and sign his contract. The two clubs have yet to agree but the transfer fee would exceed 65 million euros.
The Madrid coach confirmed that he was not expecting a move in the transfer window to replace the midfielder: “Real Madrid’s plans don’t change: to fight and participate in all competitions. I’m sure we’ll do well with or without Casemiro. We have six very good midfielders (Tchouaméni, Kroos, Camavinga, Modric, Ceballos and Valverde). I think that’s enough to handle the whole season. »
