His manager, Carlo Ancelotti also confirmed during a press conference that the footballer had already told him that he wanted to leave: “We respect Casemiro’s decision. He wants to leave and try a new challenge. His teammates respect him and his decision. They love him, the club loves him. We are not sad, we are respectful”.

A quality step

Manchester United were in need of a world-class defensive midfielder for quite some time after Scott McTominay and Fred had proven time and time again they weren’t good enough together in the middle of the field. Now, arguably the best defensive midfielder in the world is joining the Red Devils and he will definitely upgrade the quality in midfield.
