 This transaction, estimated at 70 million euros, is on the podium of the biggest sales of the Los Blancos.

A page turns for the Real Madrid midfielder.¬†The “Bermuda triangle” theorized by¬†Carlo Ancelotti¬†ended this Friday with the confirmed departure of Casemiro, heading to Manchester United, leaving his teammates Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.¬†The Red Devils paid 70 million euros, excluding bonuses estimated at an additional 11 million, to recruit the 30-year-old Brazilian.¬†Where to place this transfer in the sales hierarchy of the “Los Blancos”?

A man of many records,¬†Cristiano Ronaldo¬†remains Real Madrid’s biggest sale to date.¬†In 2018, after the treble in the Champions League, the Portuguese striker left to join Juventus Turin against 117 million euros.¬†Now at Manchester United, “CR7” could find Casemiro, if he stays at the club by the end of the transfer market.

Casemiro had been recruited for 6 million euros

In 2014, Manchester United already invested more than 70 million euros in a Real Madrid player. At that time, Angel Di Maria also left the merengue club for the Premier League. But the experience was not conclusive for the Argentinian, who then joined PSG.

Casemiro dislodges Alvaro Morata from this honorary podium. Trained at the club, the Spanish striker even had two departures. The first for Juventus, in 2014, brought in 20 million. Bought 30 million in 2016, he had gone to Chelsea in the summer of 2017, against 66 million euros. In this ranking, follow respectively Mesut Ozil (47 million), Mateo Kovacic (45 million), Achraf Hakimi (43 million), Robinho (43 million), Raphael Varane (40 million) and Gonzalo Higuaín (39 million).

Casemiro will sign a four-year contract with Manchester United, with an optional year. At Real Madrid, the former Porto player won 18 trophies, including five Champions League on the clock and three La Liga. Trained in Sao Paulo, Casemiro was loaned to Castilla for six months in January 2013, before signing on for six million. Nine years after his arrival, it is an understatement, beyond the titles and his contribution to the field, that Casemiro has been profitable.
