Casemiro back to Real Madrid

Real Madrid have exercised an option to take midfielder Casemiro back from Porto, in a complex deal reported to have cost the Liga giants around €7.5 million. The club have confirmed via official statement what was not much of a secret. Casemiro will return to the team after spending one season on loan with FC Porto.

Casemiro, 23, joined Porto in a loan move last summer, with the initial deal reportedly including a clause for the Portuguese club to make the move permanent this summer by paying €15 million. The deal however also included another clause under which Madrid could themselves keep Casemiro on their books, reportedly by rejecting the €15 million fee and themselves paying €7.5 million to the LigaSagres side.

The tangle of negotiations now appears to be over, with Madrid having released an official statement which said it had taken up the option to retain Casemiro’s playing rights.

“Real Madrid has exercised the option to salvage federative rights on the player Casemiro, after FC Porto stated that his buy back clause had been activated,” read a statement on the Spanish club’s website.

Casemiro played fairly well with the Portuguese side and should be able to make an impact in RafaBenítez’s squad. However, he should not be expected to start, but considering that Benítez rotates his team a lot, Casemiro should get relevant minutes throughout the season.

All in all, this was an expected move by Real Madrid, one that could be very important for the team’s depth. Lucas Silva will likely be loaned now that Casemiro is back, and the former Cruzeiro player will have to prove if he has what it takes to play for Real Madrid.

Born in São Paulo, Casemiro was a product of São Paulo FC’s youth system. From the age of 11 upwards, he acted as captain to its sides. Casemiro made his La Liga debut as he joined Madrid in Januay 2013, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–1 home win over Real Betis. In international career, Casemiro made his debut for the Brazilian full side in 2011 in a 0–0 draw against Argentina, aged just 19.

Casemiro, who initially arrived in Madrid from Sao Paulo in 2013, was a key figure for Porto last term. The 23-year-old spent last season on loan with Porto, making 41 appearances and scoring four goals. His fine form in Portugal earned him a call-up to Dunga’s Brazil squad for this month’s Copa America in Chile.
