PSG are interested in signing a Real Madrid player who is deemed non-transferable by the club and forms an integral part of the setup.
Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid share very cordial relations and it has been visible in the way both sides are handling the Kylian Mbappe situation mongered by the media, though it seems inevitable and a matter of time. However, the two have not been involved in many transfers of late apart from that of Keylor Navas, which saw Alphonse Areola loaned in return.
Don Balon has now claimed that the Ligue 1 champions have made a bid to sign the Merengues’ defensive midfielder in Casemiro. PSG have offered the Whites a whopping sum of 120 million euros in a latent transfer that could see their engine room strengthen massively. Having said that, Los Blancos have said no for the time being.
Casemiro is inarguably the world’s best defensive midfielder right now and comprises an indispensable part of Zinedine Zidane’s roster. Without the Brazilian, the 13-time European champions visibly struggle to win the midfield battles and allow the opposition to penetrate the defence more often than usually, which has shown a turn in results.
Zidane has absolutely made it clear to Florentino Perez that he intends to continue with the Brazil international on his roster for as long as time permits and in fact, the Frenchman has expressed his desire to renew Casemiro’s contract beyond June 2023. Moreover, the club has already started planning for life after its star man by vesting interest in Eduardo Camavinga.
While wanting to upgrade their squad is a natural and vital move from the Parisians, especially with the UEFA Champions League in mind, they already have Idrissa Gueye in their roster who’s shown great signs. The former Everton midfielder is just two years elder to Casemiro and physically gives the team a lot which must not be hampered.
In addition to that, it looks unlikely that even the former Porto loanee switches pastures away from the Santiago Bernabeu. Casemiro is a captain candidate going forward after Sergio Ramos, and being at Madrid even allows him to find it easier in getting national call-ups and individual accolades, not to mention the scoring numbers.
Los Blancos are now four points clear of their arch-rivals Barcelona in La Liga and owe a lot to Casemiro, who has been rock-solid for them. Apart from being a defensive stalwart, the midfielder has delivered in the final-third as well by scoring some important goals like a brace against Sevilla and the winner at Espanyol in 2020 itself.
