Casemiro likened to United legends
''It’s quite an easy question because of the style of play. I’d much prefer to play with Casemiro, somebody who I knew could play the position really well. He probably reminds me of Carrick, Roy Keane, and midfielders of his type. If I had to choose out of the two, it would have to be Casemiro.''
He further said his midfield pair with Eriksen, or Fernandes will score so many goals but concede similar amounts of goals.

He was concerned with Manchester United offering Casemiro a lengthy contract as well as huge salary, for a player already in his thirties. He looks convinced otherwise now.
Casemiro is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world. He formed a midfield trio with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos at Real Madrid and won three consecutive UEFA Champions League trophies.
