Carlos Henrique Casemiro is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for La Liga club Real Madrid and the Brazil national team. Born on born 23 February 1992, he has made a shocking move to the England Premier League side, Manchester United.
The Brazilian moved to Real Madrid in 2013, and also spent a season on loan at Porto. He was part of the Real Madrid squad that won four Champions League titles in five seasons, from 2014 to 2018. In total he has won fifteen major trophies at Real Madrid, including five UEFA Champions Leagues, three La Liga titles, one Copa del Rey and three FIFA Club World Cups.

He made his La Liga debut on 20th April 2013 against Real Betis and on On 19th August 2022, Real Madrid confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Manchester United for the transfer of their midfielder.
Report from Fabrizio Romano indicated that the deal included a €60m fixed fee and €10m add-ons. it was added that the Madrid star has full agreement on four year deal, option until 2027.
The reason behind the defensive midfielder’ transfer to Manchester united is still not clear. One of the reasons can be drafted from the words on Carlo Ancelotti.
According the the Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti, the defensive midfielder wants to try a new challenge and he understands his decision.
As it was reported by the Chelsea media;
“the teenage midfielder is considered one of his homeland’s brightest prospects after shining at youth level for club and country, being part of the Italy side which reached the semi-finals of the European Under-19 Championship in the summer.
Casadei is known as a complete midfielder, combining physicality and strength in the air with great timing in the challenge and excellent technique, as well as intelligent movement when arriving in the penalty area to score goals.
He started his youth career with Cervia before catching the eye at Cesena, helping their Under-15s reach the national play-offs. When Cesena folded in 2018, he moved to Inter and made an instant impact, scoring a 95th-minute equaliser in the play-off quarter-finals as they became national Under-17 champions in 2018/19, despite still being a schoolboy and only turning 16 that January.
By the end of the following campaign he was a regular for the Nerazzurri’s Under-19s – the highest level of youth football in Italy – and starred for the team as they were crowned national champions last season, scoring a crucial equaliser as they beat Roma in the play-off final. In total he scored 16 goals in 38 appearances in the top-tier Primavera division and UEFA Youth League in 2021/22.
Casadei also frequently trained with Inter’s senior side last season, being named among the substitutes by manager Simone Inzaghi for the first time when they played Sassuolo in Serie A in February.
Head of youth development Neil Bath said: ‘Cesare is a player we have tracked for some time and we are delighted that he has now agreed to join Chelsea, where he will initially strengthen our Under-21s squad. He is another exciting emerging talent who we are looking forward to seeing develop and progress further as he breaks into senior football in the coming years.’”
Chelsea this summer is investing a lot in the young players for the future. Earlier this summer the Club headed by Mr. Todd Boehly has comfirmed the signing of Chukwemeka, Hutuchinson, Slonina, Sturge and Dibling. these all young and under the age of 20 years.
