Casemiro is serial-winner in the midfield as his stats of last season are proof. The Brazilian midfielder played 32 LaLiga matches Real Madrid last season and completed 1688 passes out of the 1962 attempted with a passing accuracy of 86.03 percent. He contested in 397 duels with 79 tackles and 59 clearances. He will bring the much needed firepower in the middle of the park for United in the Premier League.
