Real Madrid eyeing 24-year-old Brazilian midfielder as replacement for Manchester United target

A week ago, the thought of Casemiro leaving Real Madrid would have been unfathomable. When Manchester United approached the player this week too, it was widely anticipated that the player would outright reject the possibility.

Yet, with every passing day, his departure is edging closer to reality. The Brazilian has been a flag-bearer in the club’s midfield for close to a decade and it will be difficult to replace him.

According to reports from AS, Los Blancos are already in the transfer market looking for possible replacements. At the moment, Bruno Guimaraes is the club’s first choice to strengthen the midfield.

The 24-year-old Brazilian has kept up his good form after signing for Newcastle United in January. In 19 appearances for the club, he has found the back of the net five times and has become an undisputed starter for the Magpies.

In his 17 league starts last season, Guimaraes averaged over ten defensive actions per game in addition to his six-goal contributions. Needless to say, he was a vital part of Newcastle’s resurgence in the latter part of the last season.

Manchester United are currently well placed to land Casemiro this summer and are ready to offer around €60 million for his services. They have also proposed a contract that would double the wages he earns on his current contract at Real Madrid.

Needless to say, Los Blancos‘ pursuit of Guimaraes depends heavily on Casemiro’s decision. A clearer picture of the situation should emerge in the coming days as Real Madrid and Manchester United progress talks on the veteran’s transfer.

    You would need to offer double what Man utd are paying you for casemiro or newcastle will laugh in your face. If you would be willing to pay that you’re moronic.

    Madrid have as much chance of this transfer as they do signing mbappe. Is he worth double what you receive for casemiro? Thats what you’ll be forced to pay.

Ancelotti devises plan to prepare Real Madrid defensive ace for Bayern Munich clash

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
