Casemiro wanted to have a new challenge in the Premier League.
The Premier League giants have officially announced Casemiro’s arrival at Old Trafford last night before their 2-1 win over Liverpool.
He is expected to make his debut against Southampton this weekend.
The Brazilian midfielder expresses his desire to win the Premier League and wishes Ronaldo doesn’t depart this summer.
“I spoke to my wife and she said I look like an 18-year-old kid who is super excited about his new project and I do feel so excited about playing in the Premier League,” Casemiro said during an emotional farewell ceremony.
“If I could, I would play today for United against Liverpool. It’s a club with great history, I will have to work hard to make a name for myself because there, I have won nothing yet. At Manchester United, first of all, what I want is to transmit the way I feel about the club, my respect.
“Everything I did here [at Real] I want to do there, too. I want to show my fighting spirit, capacity to work hard and professional attitude. I want to win the league. I am going through one of the best moments of my career. I feel I’m really fit, mentally I feel great, and I want to continue to enjoy. It’s a great moment to take this decision.”
