Casemiro has been an undisputed starting member of the Real Madrid team and is widely considered one of the best defensive midfielders in the world. He is the solid rock of the Real Madrid midfield, along with Balon D’Or winner, Luka Modric and World Cup winner Toni Kroos.
His performances have engineered very important victories for the club. He has won four Champions League titles, 2 La Liga titles with the club. Those three out of those four came in successive years and in each one of those years, Casemiro played a very pivotal role in each one of those victories.
He is mainly known as the “destroyer” of the Real Madrid midfield, unlike the more “classy” and “technical” Modric and Kroos. He is mainly known for breaking up plays, helping the team defensively and distributing the ball accurately after winning back the goal. He has also shown the ability to go forward with his off the ball runs, can start attacking plays with his passes and has good shooting ability outside of the penalty box. He is known for his energy on the field and has quick reactions and has good positional sense.
Before coming to Madrid, he was with São Paulo where he won the Copa Sudamericana. He also went on loan to Porto for the 2014-15 season, though he did not win any honours that season.
Madrid has recently extended the contracts of many players such as Courtois, Benzema, Valverde and others and increased the salaries so that they can still be an important part of Real Madrid.
