Fabrizio Romano downplays immediate transfer concerns regarding Manchester United star Casemiro
The seasoned Brazilian midfielder only moved to Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer of 2022. But he made an immediate impression as he led Erik ten Hag’s team to the Carabao Cup victory and had a great start in the Premier League.
But Casemiro’s play this season hasn’t been quite as impressive, which has sparked rumours of a potential exit. The 31-year-old has also been claimed to be uneasy and finding it difficult to adjust to life in England.
Addressing the issue, Fabrizio said:
“Casemiro’s future will be discussed for sure in the next months, but for now anything else is just speculation.”
But the 31-year-old started on a good note with features that ranked him among the best enforcers around the world. While the best years of his career are behind him, the veteran still packs a punch in the middle of the park.
Casemiro was bought by United with significant financial backing, and he now commands a high salary. The 31-year-old’s arrogant mindset would not permit him to depart United until he demonstrated that the team’s investment in him was worthwhile. However, as his prime years approach their conclusion and his body fails to support him, time is surely running out.
Thankfully, despite the rumours, the prospect of him leaving the club in January appears to be a closed book. Casemiro should now be expected to stay put at least until the end of the current campaign, giving us time to plan and restructure the squad as needed.
With Jim Ratcliffe set to plant his imprint on the club, it remains to be seen what plans the recruitment team will have for the long-term vision. Whether Casemiro is privy to it or not remains to be seen.
