New Manchester United signing Casemiro said he hopes that Cristiano Ronaldo stays at Old Trafford, despite the Portugal star being linked with a move away for much of the summer.
Casemiro joined United in a potential £70 million deal last week from Real Madrid, where he was previously a teammate of Ronaldo’s for several seasons. And Casemiro said Ronaldo has already helped with the transition to his new surroundings.
Casemiro said in an interview with ESPN Brasil:
We are talking about one of the best players of all time. He knows that I respect him a lot. I hope he stays with us, because he is a great player.
He gives you a lot of goals, he is a winner, he is a leader. He is so important for us. We approached each other because of the language, too. Since the first day here, he has helped me with everything. He is helping me a lot. I really hope he stays with us.
