No noise was made when Casemiro arrived in Real Madrid in 2013. Things weren’t smooth sailing for him back then, but he’s been playing a vital role in the club since then and has recently extended his stay until 2023. When his future was in question early on, Jose Mourinho offered him a chance against Real Betis and his life changed forever.
The Brazilian has been one of the most important pieces of Zinedine Zidane’s puzzle at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and one of the first names mentioned every week in his start XI.
No one is under any illusions as to how valuable Casemiro is at Real Madrid and that was proven when the club fought off competition from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, given their willingness to pay big money for his services.
Steps were taken during the 2019/20 season for an extension to be negotiated until the club decided to do all internal renewals and avoid releasing them as they happened. Casimiro had to bid his time at Real Madrid, also loaned to Porto to find minutes in his earlier days.
He’s won four Champions Leagues, three Club World Cups, one LaLiga Santander, one Copa del Rey, two Supercopa de Espana crowns, and two European Super Cups now he’s gained the admiration not just from his teammates but also from opponents and officials as well.
