Casemiro bid an emotional farewell to Real Madrid on Monday morning, but vowed to come back one day to the club where he spent nine years.

Casemiro will join Manchester United in a deal worth £60million plus £10million in add-ons.

After struggling to start the speech at his official farewell on Monday, an emotional Casemiro said: “When I left Sao Paulo, it was clear to me that I would play in Real Madrid first team. Here I built my life, my family.

“The greatest title I have achieved is coming to train every morning at this club. As you know, I don’t like the spotlight or being in the spotlight, I’ll try to speak from my heart.

“If I talk about teammates, I can’t not talk about: Modrić and Kroos. We’ve won a lot and we’ve really enjoyed playing together.”

Casemiro added: “I am excited to develop at a big club like Manchester United. I’m sure one day I’ll come back. I want to give back all the love they gave me.”

Casemiro won 12 major trophies with Los Blancos, including three LaLiga titles and an incredible five Champions Leagues.
