Chelsea has entered the race to recruit Casemiro, the talented midfielder from Real Madrid. To get the midfielder to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will need to bid roughly €60 million.
This addition might be highly beneficial to Chelsea’s team. Real Madrid is willing to let the Brazilian leave for the proper price.
The Brazilian is regarded as one of the game’s top defensive midfielders. He made his Real Madrid debut in the 2015-16 season and has been a regular on the team sheet.
Real Madrid’s midfielder has made 307 appearances, scoring 30 goals and assisting on another 27. After Casemiro’s poor start to the season, the club has decided to part ways with him.
Chelsea has been notified of the situation and is attempting to recruit the Real Madrid midfielder. According to sources, Chelsea is willing to match Los Blancos’ €60 million asking prices for the Brazilian.
Chelsea’s dilemma is that Casemiro has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain. It will be challenging for the Blues to compete in a transfer battle.
Chelsea is expected to sell Ross Barkley, and Saul Niguez’s stint at Stamford Bridge is also unlikely to be prolonged. As a result, a signing like Casemiro will be warmly welcomed at Chelsea.
In a similar position to Casemiro, Chelsea has N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, and Mateo Kovacic on their books. Signing a world-class player like Casemiro, on the other hand, would only improve the squad, and Chelsea is keen to complete the deal.
Casemiro’s representatives have already begun negotiations with Chelsea, and they have a strong chance of luring him away from Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid is weighing their possibilities for replacing Casemiro if the trade goes through. They have their sights on Wilfred Ndidi of Leicester City and believe he may be the ideal alternative for Casemiro.
