United have finally managed to address a glaring weakness in their team that has haunted the for the past three seasons.
Casemiro adds world-class quality to United’s midfield and instantly improves their balance.
The Brazilian is one of the best in the world in his position and is expected to walk into Erik ten Hag’s side.
He has a good relationship with Fred, and the two are a formidable pair for Brazil.
The 30 year old could help revive United’s abysmal start to the campaign.
United had plans for him to start as early as the Liverpool game, but with the visa work required, that is unlikely to happen.
