When Casemiro’s loan move was made permanent, he didn’t have an easy time initially. Jose Mourinho gave him an opportunity to play against Real Betis. However, next season he was sent out on loan for 2014-15 season at Porto. He returned the next season and this was the time when he started appearing in the starting XI. Now he is a regular starter and Real Madrid trust him so much that they have decided to not reinforce their defensive midfield.
In the six seasons he spent with Los Blancos, he has helped the club win four Champions League titles, three FIFA Club World Cups, one La Liga title, one Copa Del Rey, two Spanish Super Cups and two UEFA Super Cups. In addition, he won the coveted Copa America title with his national team last year.
