Why This Is Such an Important Signing for Manchester United
There are several reasons why bringing in Casemiro is such a good addition for the Red Devils.
First and foremost, it means they finally have a natural defensive midfielder, and a world-class one at that. Casemiro will sit very deep, guarding United’s shaky backline and freeing up his fellow midfielders to take up more attacking positions.
🚨🇧🇷 Casemiro in February 2021: "The first thing I want to see after a game is how many recoveries or interceptions I've made. These are my goals, my assists. Everyone likes to score, to make a nice play, but my happiness comes in recovering the ball." @TheAthleticUK #MUFC ✅ pic.twitter.com/o8cLEX4j5y

In turn, this means, among other things, that we may finally see Fred in the position he was bought to play. When he impressed United scouts at Shakhtar Donetsk, he was lining up in a fairly offensive role, but since his move to Old Trafford he has been forced to cover for their lack of a defensive midfielder, and as such we have never seen his true potential unleashed.

Not only that, but signing Casemiro also demonstrates that United are still an enormous team. They have been able to attract one of the best talents in the game despite the fact that they sit rock bottom of the Premier League following an embarrassing two losses in as many games to kick off Erik ten Hag’s first campaign in the Old Trafford hot seat. If nothing else, this shows that the idea of playing for Manchester United still has an exceptional pull in the world of football.
