How Manchester United ace Casemiro compares to best Premier League midfielders this season

October 30, 2022

Man United signed Casemiro in the summer and the defensive midfielder has proved to be quite the addition at Old Trafford.

Manchester United ended their long wait for a world-class defensive midfielder when signing Casemiro this summer.

United bought Casemiro from Real Madrid on a four-year contract with the option of an additional year for an initial fee of £60million and it was the type of transfer that supporters had been desperate for, with the need for a defensive midfielder obvious.

Casemiro was unveiled at Old Trafford before United’s defeat of Liverpool in August and he was available to play against Southampton five days later, although he didn’t start at St. Mary’s Stadium, which came as a surprise.
