Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly made the decision to start Casemiro ahead of new signing Aurelien Tchouameni this season.
According to AS, Ancelotti considers Tchouameni as the future, but isn’t convinced the France international offers the positional and tactical sense that Casemiro has.
The report also adds that Ancelotti has talked to Casemiro reassuring him that he’s the absolute starter and he doesn’t have to worry about Tchouameni.
Ancelotti trusts Luka Modrić, Casemiro and Toni Kroos as his midfield and believes the new midfielders have to adapt.
Meanwhile, 90,000 fans will watch Real Madrid take on Juventus in Los Angeles, United States on Sunday.
