In a recent report, El Nacional claimed that Real Madrid are willing to cash in on Casemiro for €60m. It is understood that the Brazilian midfield ace is open to a move to Paris Saint-Germain next summer with Los Blancos willing to let him go for the right price.
Casemiro’s Impressive Run Of Form At The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium This Season
Casemiro is having another solid campaign for the Madrid giants after producing a series of dominant performances at the heart of their midfield. The 29-year-old has made 20 appearances for Real Madrid this season, picking up three assists on all fronts.
The Brazilian sensation has given a good account of himself in European football as he is averaging 2.8 tackles, 1.0 interceptions, 1.4 clearances, 1.0 shots and 0.6 dribbles per game in the UEFA Champions League. He has even been tidy when distributing possession from midfield, based on his pass success rate of 91.7% in European football (stats via whoscored).
Real Madrid Willing To Sell Casemiro For €60m: Good Call By Ancelotti?
Casemiro is a tough-tackling midfielder who can time his challenges well to earn the ball back for his team at the centre of the park. He usually doesn’t take too many risks when clearing his lines inside his half. The 60-time Brazil international is an accurate passer of the ball as well and can make a few powerful runs with the ball from midfield. He can even chip in by picking up the odd assist in the final third.
Casemiro remains an integral member of Carlo Ancelotti‘s midfield. His current contract with Los Blancos is set to expire in the summer of 2025. However, at 29, the South American talent has only got a few years left in his prime.
Thus, if the Madrid outfit receives an offer close to €60m for him, it makes sense for them to cash in on him in the summer as Ancelotti would have ample time to bring in a suitable replacement capable of filling the Brazilian’s shoes at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. All in all, it seems like a good call for Los Blancos to sell Casemiro for a high fee before the player enters his 30s in the coming seasons.
