The Brazilian will be given an astronomical contract at Old Trafford, which will link the midfielder to the English club until 2026, with a more optional campaign and a salary almost double what he had.
Football is totally unpredictable. Everything was calm at Real Madrid until a few days. A calm market after a successful season, two reinforcements and continuity in a winning block. Nothing seemed to change the calm in Chamartín until Manchester United, in despair, stormed into a china shop like an elephant in search of Casemiro, pillar of a golden age and third point of the trident that, along with Modric and Kroos, with the fist of iron European football in recent times.
All this is now history, as the Brazilian has decided to take on the challenge of stepping out of the comfort zone, with a bag full of titles, yes. Change the Santiago Bernabéu for Old Trafford, the champions of Europe and the League for a team that won’t even play in the next edition of the Champions League and is currently at the bottom of the English Premier League. A big challenge or a leap into the void, only the future will tell, but hand in hand with an astronomical contract, which will link the Brazilian midfielder to Manchester United until 2026, with a more optional campaign, and a salary that doubles what he grossed about eleven million euros per season in Madrid.
The Brazilian trained this Friday with his teammates in Valdebebas. In what has been his home for so long, joined by many of the footballers with whom he has built a team that is already part of history. As if nothing had happened, smiling and relaxed, but the truth is that the procession had arrived and the midfielder was already negotiating the terms of his new contract with United. Everything was resolved with tremendous speed, typical of an outcome that the three sides believed to be irreversible. A staggering bid of 70 million fixed euros, plus another 15 in variables, completed an operation as quickly as it was impressive.
