According to reports, a former Manchester City player Danilo has advised Casemiro to leave Manchester United for Juventus.
As the Old Trafford club gears up to face Sevilla in the Europa League quarter-final, they will be boosted by the return of Casemiro, who has completed a four-match domestic ban.
Although Casemiro has faced disciplinary issues this season, including two straight red cards in the Premier League within a matter of months, he has also played a crucial role in United’s success under manager Erik ten Hag.
As United take on Sevilla, the return of Casemiro will undoubtedly be a major boost to the team, and his presence on the pitch could prove decisive in the outcome of the match.
However, reports of a possible move to Juventus may raise questions about his long-term future with the club.
Regardless, United will be hoping to continue their winning streak in the Europa League, and the return of Casemiro will give them a much-needed boost as they aim to progress to the semi-finals. With the quarter-final tie evenly poised, it promises to be an exciting and tense encounter, and United will be looking to Casemiro to help guide them to victory.
Casemiro is enamoured by the United faithful and has been central to all the progress the club have made this term in both boxes.
And at 31, having signed a four-year deal last summer with the option of an extension, United are likely to be Casemiro’s last elite club.
However, a former City player has admitted he would love Casemiro to join him at Juventus and work under Massimiliano Allegri.
Speaking ahead of Juventus’ Europa League meeting with Sporting, Danilo insisted he would love it if his compatriot Casemiro moved to Juventus.
In an interview with the Athletic, Danilo spoke about the history of Brazilian players at Juventus and the influence of his countrymen in Europe’s top league.
The former City man said: “Look at the top sides and they all have Brazilians who are either captains or hard workers.
“There’s Marquinhos at PSG, Thiago Silva at Chelsea, Casemiro at Madrid and then Man United. Alisson at Liverpool. Ederson at City, and Fernandinho before him.
“The perception of Brazilian footballers has changed and so where there was once a clash with Juve, all of these players could come here and be in the team for years.
“I’d love to have Casemiro. He’d be at home here.”
