Ancelotti was speaking at a press conferencece ahead of Real Madrid’s second league game of the season against Celta Vigo on Saturday, August 19th, 2022. The Italian confirmed that the Brazilian wants to try a new challenge and also wants a new opportunity.
I spoke with him this morning. He wants to try a new challenge, a new opportunity. The club understands him for what he has done and for the person he is. There are negotiations, nothing is official, but his will to get out of it is clear. If there is an agreement, we have resources to replace it.
However, the Italian said there is official between both clubs and he is not trying to convince Casemiro to stay at Real Madrid.
I have not tried to convince him. I have talked a lot with him. I am very confident with him, he has helped us a lot. Listening to his will and desire there is no way to go back. You have to consider this. I don’t know what will happen in the next few hours, if he stays or doesn’t. If he does not stay, my thanks are great because he has done it and he is doing it very well.
He also explained by the player wants to leave Real Madrid to join Manchester United.
These are personal issues. Casemiro has understood very well what Real Madrid is. Something similar happened to me when I was coach of Milan, you are very good, but there comes a time when you want to try something new. And he felt very good in a club that was like a family. It is something personal and I understand it perfectly.
The 30-year-old is expected to sign a four-year deal with the Red Devils with an option to extend by an extra year.
