In August 2022, Brazilian midfielder Carlos Casemiro became one of Manchester United’s most notable signings, with a transfer that amounted to the impressive figure of 60 million pounds (just over 70 million euros at the exchange rate). However, his adaptation to English football and the ‘Red Devils’ shirt has not been as successful as expected in this second campaign.
In his seven seasons with Real Madrid, Casemiro was sent off only twice, both for a double yellow. In contrast, in just a year and a half in England, he has seen two straight red cards and another for a double yellow, which has raised questions about his aggressive playing style.
Casemiro’s performance at Manchester United has been, at best, okay in his first season. The team achieved a third-place finish in the league and reached two cup finals, winning the Carabao Cup. However, for a club of United’s magnitude, these achievements are considered insufficient.
His injury complicates everything
Furthermore, the news of a current injury for Casemiro only aggravates the situation. The Premier League is a demanding competition, and the Brazilian player’s failure to adapt has left fans and club management questioning his future in Manchester.
Manchester United are rumored to be willing to transfer Casemiro and use the proceeds from the sale to finance the construction of the new Old Trafford. The intention to get rid of the midfielder is evident, and his future at the club hangs in the balance.
