Casemiro said he wants to feature for the Real Madrid first team, regardless of being on loan at Madrid’s Castilla side.
The 20-year-old is contracted to Sao Paulo but is on loan to Madrid’s reserves, and Real have the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season should they so desire.
However, the Brazilian has his sights set on a much higher goal – playing for the Spanish side’s first team.
“I’m going to play in the first team of Real Madrid,” Casemiro told Lance.
The industrious midfielder’s representative, Joseph Lee, is equally confident Casemiro can make the jump for the Spanish powerhouse.
“Casemiro is not a player suited for a reserve team,” he said.
“For us, the aim is not for him to play in the B team, but he will make the necessary adaptations playing for Castilla and then go to the first team.”
While the claims of the midfielder and his representative might seem a little presumptuous, Casemiro has already made over 50 appearances for Sao Paulo, won the Under-20 World Cup in 2011 and has three caps for Brazil’s senior side.
