Alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, Casemiro has defined an era in the midfield of Real Madrid. For close to a decade, he has been a vital part of the Spanish team’s setup and has earned a reputation for being one of the best defensive midfielders in world football.

The Brazilian has won it all with Real Madrid including three La Liga titles and five UEFA Champions League trophies. Now, as he steps into the final phase of his career, he has one final chance to make a big move and start a new chapter as Manchester United are interested in his services.

According to reports from Andy Mitten, Casemiro is yet to decide if his future lies at Real Madrid or Manchester United. One big factor that will influence his decision is whether or not he will be a key starter for Los Blancos in 2-3 years.

Until last year, Casemiro was an irreplaceable part of Carlo Ancelotti’s setup. Moreover, given that he is still just 30, the Brazilian could easily have another 3-4 years in his tank.

However, the arrival of Aurelien Tchouameni complicates the situation. The French international is seen as the long-term replacement for Casemiro and will undoubtedly take a big slice of the veteran’s playing time in the coming years.

Manchester United not only assure game time but also promise to double his wages, an offer that would be difficult to turn down. Moreover, it is a chance for the midfielder to prove himself in a new league.

The Red Devils are willing to offer €60 million for Real Madrid’s star player. The final decision, however, will be completely down to the player.

Real Madrid’s collective strength this season cannot be questioned as coach Carlo Ancelotti has assembled a well-oiled side that knows little except bagging victories.

Yet, even in this formidable lineup, Real Madrid’s top scorer this season, Jude Bellingham, stands out above the rest.

The Englishman has exceeded all expectations since joining the Merengues and was once more a key factor for Real Madrid against Barcelona recently.

His last-minute winner against the Catalans saw Madrid essentially confirm their La Liga victory, as the Royal Whites maintain a dominant 11-point lead over Barcelona with seven games left to spare.

Praise from an international teammate

Now, Manchester City sensation Phil Foden, Bellingham’s international teammate and foe from last week has come out to shower praise upon the midfielder.

“I can’t believe his age. I’ve never seen anyone so mature for their age. I feel like he has a gift from God with his physique,” Foden told Mail Sport.

Not only does Foden get to witness Bellingham witness his talents in the English camp, but he also suffered at his hands in Real Madrid’s second-leg quarter-final affair against Manchester City.

Even though the Real Madrid star did not stamp his name on the scoreboard, a moment of great poise under pressure allowed Madrid to take the lead early on.

When asked if Bellingham has ever asked for advice, Foden replied that he does not need any considering he is level-headed and has a supportive family.

“I don’t think he needs any advice, to be honest. He’s an exceptional player. He has a good head on his shoulders. I think he has a good family around him. He is someone I look at, and I don’t see any weaknesses in him,” the 23-year-old claimed.

Bellingham is flying high

In addition to triumphing over Barcelona and Manchester City with great performances, Bellingham was busy collecting wins off the pitch.

Indeed, the 20-year-old was recently awarded the Laureus Award for the Breakthrough of the Year for 2024.

With 21 goals and 10 assists for Real Madrid this season, he has become a beacon of reliability for the Merengues this season.

And the club will be relying on him heavily in the upcoming showdown with Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
