Toni Kroos and Luka Modric send heartfelt farewell messages to Casemiro after Man Utd move

Real Madrid legends Toni Kroos and Luka Modric have sent heartfelt farewell messages to Casemiro following his transfer to Manchester United.

Man United were initially planning on signing Adrien Rabiot from Juventus but after they failed to reach personal terms with the player’s agent, they turned their attention elsewhere.

United showed strong interest in Casemiro and successfully reached an agreement with Real Madrid over the signing of the 30-year-old.

Manchester United signed the Brazilian from Real in a €60million transfer fee that could rise to €70million. He’s expected to sign a four-year deal with an option to make it five and his medical has already been scheduled.

Casemiro’s team-mates have already sent their farewell messages to the midfielder, who has won the Champions League title on five occasions, but the farewell messages he’s received from his former midfield partners Modric and Kroos hit different.

The trio performed at their very best at the highest possible level at club level and formed loads of noteworthy moments. It would be fair to admit that the trio have gone on to become more than team-mates.

In Toni Kroos‘ message, he assured Casemiro that their friendship would remain strong, although he’s aware that they could come up against each other as enemies in the nearest seasons.

Still from his message, Kroos also confirmed that the Brazilian saved him on several occasions and closed his farewell with good wishes on his future.

Luka Modric remembered how he tried to help Casemiro settle well at Real Madrid during his first season at Santiago Bernabeu.

The former Tottenham midfielder also hailed him as the ‘best’ bodyguard in the world.

The Croatian midfielder did well to wish him the very best on his new chapter as a new Manchester United player.
