Casemiro is “as determined as ever” to win trophies with Manchester United following confirmation of his transfer from Real Madrid.
United confirmed last week an agreement had been reached with Madrid, and the reported £60million (€70m) deal officially went through on Monday.
The 30-year-old bade an emotional farewell to Madrid at a news conference prior to travelling to Old Trafford for United’s clash with fierce rivals Liverpool.
And after being paraded on the pitch ahead of kick-off, United announced on their website that Casemiro has penned a four-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.
Vastly experienced Brazil international Casemiro won 18 trophies in his decade with Madrid, including five Champions Leagues, and is eager to land more silverware in England.
“The opportunity to start a new challenge at Manchester United and in the Premier League is extremely exciting,” he said.
“I’ve worked with many great managers in my career, and having met with Erik [ten Hag] and heard his ideas, I can’t wait to work closely with him, his staff and my new team-mates in the coming years.
“I’m ending one beautiful journey in Madrid whilst 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 honour and I am ready to give everything to help the team achieve our ambitions.”
Welcome to United, @Casemiro
