For years now, Casemiro has been a constant feature in Real Madrid’s starting lineup. Perhaps for the first time since his move to the Bernabeu, the Brazilian faces direct competition for a starting spot this year.

The arrival of Aurelien Tchouameni throws many questions regarding the defensive midfielder’s continuity. This could even open a small window of fragility in his future at the club.

According to reports from The Telegraph, Manchester United are willing to offer €60 million to sign the midfield star. The English administration eye Casemiro as the ideal candidate to reinforce their weak midfield and communicated their interest yesterday.

Despite the arrival of Tchouameni, Ancelotti remains confident that he can utilise both players’ services. The manager even suggested that he could deploy the two players simultaneously.

“Casemiro & Tchouameni can play together as a pair of pivots.”

It would be surprising if the Brazilian maestro left the UEFA Champions League winning side for a team that is lingering at the bottom of the Premier League table. Yet, one remembers the case of Raphael Varane who made the same move just over a year ago.

Ancelotti will continue using Casemiro in upcoming games being quite sure of the veteran’s continuity. Yet, the final stretch of the transfer marker often springs surprises and one must not rule out a sudden turn of the tables.

Last season, Casemiro made 31 league appearances for Real Madrid scoring one goal and providing three assists. Moreover, he averaged close to a whopping 15 defensive actions per game.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
