After playing nine years for the laliga giants the 30-year-old defensive midfielder has decided to leave the club for Manchester united.
Brazilian midfielder Casemiro won 18 trophies during his time with Los Blancos
The player has already agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford outfit where he is expected to pocket a whopping £350,000-a-week. Real Madrid will have to use the newly signed Tchouameni as the new first eleven defensive midfielder to replace the 30-year-old. Casemiro has informed real Madrid board that he has a desire for a new challenge
“Casemiro is leaving but we have a lot of resources to replace him. There is no turning back, Casemiro has decided to try a new challenge.
“We want to wish him the very best. Just yesterday I realised that Casemiro is leaving, but our plans don’t change – we’ll compete for everything with or without Casemiro.
“I think Casemiro has been a key player for us, he was important to [Toni] Kroos and [Luka] Modric – the combination was key to success. Ancelotti added.
