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.

If there’s one thing to note about Karim Benzema’s career trajectory, it is that he has only improved over time.

Just last season, the French international enjoyed his finest individual campaign till date, with 44 goals and 15 assists in all competitions.

However, a question mark lingers around the club captain’s future, with his current contract set to expire next summer. A new update has emerged around the Los Blancos legend’s contractual situation, which is set to put a smile on every Madridista’s face.

As per the latest information provided by transfer insider Fabrizio Romano on the ‘Here We Go’ podcast, Karim Benzema’s contract renewal with the European champions is imminent.

Despite turning 35 in December this year, the veteran remains in the conversation for being the best striker in the world, alongside Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski.

So much so that the five-time Champions League winner is the favourite to win his first-ever Ballon d’Or later this year.

Whilst Benzema has suffered a knee injury this term, he has still managed to register three goals in five league starts.

With all signs pointing to the Los Merengues icon still being at the peak of his powers, it only makes sense why the club are intending on tying him down to a brand-new deal.

Alongside Vinicius Jr., Karim Benzema has managed to form the deadliest forward duo in Europe since the start of the 2021/22 campaign. And considering Real Madrid’s aim to triumph on multiple fronts for the upcoming seasons, it is vital that the experienced goalscorer stays put at the club.

Despite the successful coup of Aurelien Tchouameni, handing Benzema a fresh contract may be the club’s signing of the season.
