The Manchester United board of directors has approved the signing of midfielder Casemiro on a four-year deal with an extension option, provided that he meets the visa requirements of the United Kingdom.

Casemiro is a highly regarded midfielder of his era, achieving great success with Los Blancos and representing his country in 63 international matches.

Monday morning, he gave an emotional press conference to confirm his departure from the Bernabeu. Later that day, he was seen at Old Trafford ahead of the Red Devils’ Premier League match against Liverpool.

Casemiro says: “The opportunity to start a new challenge at Manchester United and in the Premier League is extremely exciting.

“I have worked with many great managers in my career, and, having met with Erik and heard his ideas, I can’t wait to work closely with him, his staff, and my new teammates in the coming years.

“I’m ending one beautiful journey in Madrid while starting another in Manchester as determined as ever to win football matches, win trophies and make our fans proud by bringing success to this great club. 

“Everybody knows the history of Manchester United, the significance of the club around the world, and what it means to its supporters. To represent United is an honor, and I am ready to give everything to help the team achieve our ambitions.”

Casemiro is United’s fourth major summer signing, following the deals for Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez, and Tyrell Malacia.
