Manchester United completed the signing of Casemiro for €70 million
Manchester United completed the signing of Casemiro for €70 million. Manchester United completed the signing of great midfielder Casemiro for €70 million. John Murtough said the player is one of the best midfielders in the world, and he hinted that he was a missing piece from what fans needed to become more successful against rival Liverpool.
Casemiro, who was supposed to replace Kante, has not had much of a chance to play. He only played for 82 minutes in Premier League matches and he has yet to start the opening league game for his new club.
There were two substitutions in the first half of the match, each from either side of the bench. The cameras panned to Casemiro and Ronaldo who seemed confused about why he was not on the field. There was confusion among some United supporters about how one of the most experienced defensive midfielders in the world was left out of this important game.
Ten Hag made his decision to keep faith with the team that had won four consecutive games after a disastrous start. However, the manner of their loss left Ten Hag wondering if he made the wrong decision.
Manchester United is experiencing an uptick in performance, specifically because of the signing of Scott McTominay. As he earns his place on the team, it is good for Manchester United in both the short and long terms. He has a lot to contribute to help keep performing at this level.
Casemiro will likely start the Europa League competition against Omonia FC to help make changes following the humiliating defeat to City. With this, the questions about why a five-time Champions League winner is having to wait for opportunities in Europa League and is not already a regular in the first-choice XI still remain.
Former Man United defender Rio Ferdinand said Casemiro might be regretting his decision to go from Madrid to Manchester.
The thing is, I wonder how it’s affecting people like Ferdinand. Yes, he has experience, but he might be feeling a little disrespected given what he’s done. It wouldn’t surprise me if he feels that way.
Some fans believe that Casemiro was never Ten Hag’s choice. As a result, he doesn’t fit with the other new signings. Lisandro Martinez and Antony played under Ten Hag at Ajax, and Christian Eriksen trained with them before his cardiac arrest. Tyrell Malacia was signed from Feyenoord, which would have been on Ajax’s radar last summer had Ten Hag stayed in Amsterdam.
Manchester United wanted another of his former players, Frenkie de Jong. The proposed €85m deal was complicated so they turned their attention to Casemiro.
Sources have informed that the technical director Darren Fletcher was impressed by Casemiro’s motivation and determined pursuit to move, in contrast to De Jong’s reluctance to move. However, Ferguson and Ten Hag both agreed that they would pursue Casemiro if possible and Ten Hag commented on how the Brazilian is a very different player than De Jong.
Ten Hag is still trying to decide how to use Memphis Depay. The player’s move between teams has raised more questions than just United’s transfer strategy.
The transfer market is not just a “ping pong” game. Every other club has a more precise plan, other than Manchester United and they will at the end of the day pay over the odds to come up short
Casemiro’s teammates have assured him that his participation in Manchester United has nothing to do with money. In addition, if Casemiro can help the club get back into Champions League, he’ll make more money than he did at Real Madrid but he needs to play for that to happen. However, manager Ten Hag said it’s up to Casemiro to prove he should play for them and pundits believe as time passes, his continued absence will be a problem for both the player and the manager.
Ten Hag has to deal with the ego’s and pride of players, like the former England defender said. These subplots are what management is about.
When you are not playing, teammates may start to look at you differently. Remember to keep your ego in check and remain professional. If you were successful at Ajax, the top club may be tougher due to lucrative egos.
Nicosia will provide Casemiro with a rare chance to impress. A more telling trial of his status will come when Ten Hag selects the team that will face Everton on Sunday.
Casemiro suits playing a type of fast game because he has experience, but that was also true of Manchester derby, and he had to watch most of it, as a player.
