Why Casemiro is One of The Best Midfielders In World Football

With reports suggesting that Manchester United are in advanced talks with real Madrid over the transfer of the tough-tackling defensive midfielder Casemiro, here is a look at some qualities the Brazilian could bring to the red devils side.

1. Defensive Brilliance

Casemiro has made a name for himself at Real Madrid for his defensive abilities. His no-nonsense and aggressive approach ensures that the defenders behind him have lighter work. Casemiro's defensive abilities not only stem from his aggressiveness but also his brilliant positional awareness which means he is always reliable when his team is under attack.

2. Passing abilities

Casemiro's ability to read the game and pick out the perfect pass makes him an all-rounded midfielder. He is formidable going forward and is always eager to contribute in attacking moves by picking defence-splitting passes from deep inside his own half.

3. Winning Mentality

Over the past few seasons, Real Madrid's winning culture has mainly stemmed from its midfield trio of Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos. Casemiro could bring the tough winning mentality to a United side lacking confidence and this can propel the team to greater heights.

Over the past seasons, Manchester United has struggled to find the right player for the defensive midfield position, largely owing to the underwhelming performances by Fred, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay. Casemiro would be an upgrade and a would slot straight into the starting eleven.
