Thomas Tuchel is said to have his eye on Manchester United’s Casemiro, as he looks for a summer signing. German media outlet Kicker reports (via FourFourTwo) that Tuchel wants to bring experienced leaders to the disorganized Bayern dressing-room, and the 31 year-old Brazilian fits the bill.
Casemiro seems to be the Bayern Munich choice as a defensive midfielder who will play alongside Joshua Kimmich. They want to improve their defense after their 4-1 loss on aggregate to Manchester City during the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Tuchel is unfazed by the value of Casemiro to Manchester United or the possible price tag. Bayern Munich is currently second in the Bundesliga and only one point behind association pioneers Borussia. There are five games remaining in the season.
Since Tuchel replaced Julian Nagelsmann as Bayern Munich’s manager at the start of April, Bayern Munich is out of both European competitions and the DFB-Pokal. The league is the only way they can win this season.
Casemiro is an important part of Manchester United’s midfield which is competing for a Champions League place in the coming season. The Red Demons will also be aiming for the top prize, even though they are facing a formidable rival in Manchester City at the FA Cup final.
Casemiro has been a key player for Erik ten Hag’s team since he moved from Real Madrid to Manchester United in the summer of last year. Casemiro’s efforts enabled the team win the Carabao Cup last February, advance to FA Cup final and compete for Champions League slots.
Erik Ten Hag is also determined to overhaul the Manchester United team.
Erik ten Haag has indicated that he is going to focus on adding depth to his team in the key positions during the upcoming transfer window. Ten Hag is also in a good position to lead United into the top four. As a result of this, the club’s financial position will improve and make it more attractive to potential signees.
I believe that we need to strengthen the team and fill more positions. The team’s diversity is also important. For the moment, you can ignore it.
It is not a problem. Keep going! We’ve had a fantastic season so far.
