Tiktukno, 18.8 (Sport1)
Real Madrid experienced a dream decade.
She won the Champions League three times in a row with Zidane and last season she repeated the feat, including winning the championship at the expense of Barcelona and Atlético, her great rivals.
Quite a few players have changed over the years, but the one who was part of all these successes is Casemiro, who is apparently leaving the Blancos after nine magical years.
According to the latest reports in Spain, 30-year-old Casemiro has agreed to an offer from Manchester United and will sign a four-year contract with the fading empire from England.
Casemiro has a contract with Real Madrid so the Red Devils will have to pay around 60 million euros for the excellent midfielder of the Brazil national team.
A gap has been created in the link.

The Brazilian did take part in Real Madrid's training session on Friday, but Carlo Ancelotti confirmed at the press conference ahead of Celta Vigo (Saturday, 23:00) that he will not play: "I spoke to him and he wants a new challenge, there is no going back. Me and his teammates understand the decision and respect her. We will always be grateful."
The coach admitted that he has difficulty understanding why the player decided to move from the European champions to a team that is in difficulties and added: "He is so nice and professional that it makes his departure sad, but we wish him the best of luck."
Ancelotti was asked about the ability of the existing squad to fill the gap that will be left in the link and replied: "We have six more boards in the squad and that is enough for the coming season. We have Orléan Tshoumani who is one of the best in the market, we also have Toni Kroos and Eduardo Camabinga. I only realized yesterday that this move is serious, but my plans will not change. In my previous term when we won 22 games in a row, Cross was the midfielder in charge, so he can play there."

In England they claim that Casemiro will fly to England in the next 36 hours to complete the medical tests and sign the contract at the end of which he will be 34 years old. Casemiro, who excels mainly thanks to his defensive ability, will try to stabilize the back link of the team that conceded 6 goals in the two opening rounds in England and was humiliated with four which she suffered in the first half in Brentford in the passing round.
Casemiro will join his team-mate, the Brazilian Fred, at United.
Manchester United also continue to look for strikers, but Casemiro may be the reinforcement that will stabilize the sinking ship of Ten Haah.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, were already prepared for the day after Casemiro, Kroos and Modric and signed Urlain Tswanami this summer and Kamabinga the previous summer.
