Madrid take up Casemiro

Real Madrid have confirmed that they have signed Brazilian midfielder Casemiro on a permanent deal this summer.

Los Blancos took the 21-year-old on an initial season-long loan last summer from Sao Paulo and he featured predominantly in the Castilla team, playing 15 times and scoring once, whilst managing a single appearance for the senior side.

Madrid have seen enough to take up their €5.3m purchase option on the youngster, announcing this week the permanent signing of the Brazilian.
