After conversing with the Brazilian international, Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed Casemiro’s intention to transfer from Real Madrid to Manchester United.
“Casemiro and I have spoken. He’s up for taking on a new task. We can respect his choice, the Madrid coach said during a press conference on Friday.
After winning three La Liga championships and five Champions Leagues, the 30-year-old defensive midfielder has informed coach Ancelotti that he is looking for a new challenge. Despite continued negotiations between Madrid and United, Ancelotti has made it plain that he won’t play on Saturday against Celta Vigo.
We have Aurélien Tchouaméni, among the greatest players available, as a substitute, and he is one of the best. Then, we have Camavinga and Kroos,” he continued.
If the window closed, Casemiro would be United’s fourth acquisition; Ancelotti was unaware of his decision to move. “I realized yesterday that it was real. “My plans won’t alter,” he declared.
Given that the team is now at the bottom of the Premier League, it seems improbable that the player will be registered in time for Monday night’s Premier League match at Old Trafford against arch-rivals Liverpool, where protests are planned.
