Manchester United fans drooling over Casemiro’s performances since joining in a £70million deal this year also ponder the worrying question: ‘How on earth can Erik ten Hag replace him?’ The Dutchman has reportedly discovered his ideal successor and could return to Spain to recruit him.
His age, 30, and the fact he appeared to be a fall-back option after the failed pursuits of Frenkie de Jong and Adrien Rabiot didn’t draw confidence.
However, the Brazilian midfielder has been the heart of Ten Hag’s newly-introduced system at Old Trafford, consistently producing standout performances to help overturn United’s fortunes.
A player of his importance will need a succession plan once he tips over his peak in a few years, and Ten Hag has seemingly already got one in place.
