Casemiro has become the star signing of the summer transfer window, with his transfer being more notable than that of Dutchman Frenkie de Jong, who was on Man Utd's radar. The Red Devils opted for the experienced 30-year-old Brazilian.

What leaves a lot of doubt is that he is nowhere near the level he is at now, the level of the player who was vital to the Real Madrid dynasty alongside Kroos and Modric.
