The 22-year-old joined Madrid in January of last year, initially on loan signing with an option to buy. After a positive start to the current campaign with the Madrid first team, he fell down the pecking order, but has recently made a few more appearances after the sides’ injury problems and suspensions in midfield.

Casemiro is a product of the Sao Paulo youth academy, joining the club at the age of 11. He was promoted to their senior team in 2010 and made his debut soon after in July. He then went on to wrack up over 100 appearances for the club despite still being a teenager.

He was brought into the Madrid B team last year, and impressed so much that he made his senior debut under Jose Mourinho against Real Betis in April 2014. Madrid took up their option to buy him permanently in June, and payed €6m for his services.

He has been impressing for the club in the Champions League this term, but with the likes of Asier Illarramendi, Xabi Alonso, Luka Modric and Angel di Maria ahead of him he is seeking out a move to Arsenal in order to progress his career.
