Madrid will allow midfielder to join Arsenal in £42.5 million deal – will he be good signing?
Real Madrid will allow midfielder Casemiro to leave in the summer and join the likes of Arsenal for £42.5 million – but would he be a good signing for the club?
With the season pretty much over for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta- the German boss will be drawing up a list of possible signings that will help him close the gap on Man City and Liverpool for next season
Arsenal will need to delve into that transfer kitty and sign some top-level – experienced players – which has led to many reports in the media linking the Gunners with a move for Madrid star Casemiro
The Brazilian has been a big feature in that Madrid side in the transfer window – but he is reportedly looking for the kind of contract that he feels that his performances this season deserves
But as a result, it’s believed that Real Madrid will not be able to hand him that kind of contract and will welcome offers for the Brazil international this summer and they’re prepared to let Casemiro go if a bid of around £42.5 million is made.
Though, the report notes that the La Liga champions will ‘gladly’ keep the defensive midfielder if he retracts his desire for a raise
Casemiro is a very good midfielder – but the pace of the Premier League and this stage of his career would make him a very poor transfer decision from Arsenal to sign
He is looking for more money as he knows he is in the final stages of his top-level footballing career – so is looking for that final pay off before he runs off into the sunset
The Gunners need players that are there for the right reasons or they will not get the success that fans are craving
Casemiro would not be a good signing for the club
