Manchester United completed the signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid and handed him a massive contract worth £375,000-a-week (The Mail).
The Brazilian international is one of the best play breakers in the world. The question is, how would he line up at Old Trafford?

The Red Devils have badly needed a strong defensive midfielder and now they have got one in the form of Casemiro, who can provide a rock solid cover in front of the back four.
So, the 30-year-old is expected to be one of the first names on the team sheet. He might as well get the nod to start against Southampton on Saturday.
