Liverpool midfielder Fabinho is backing compatriot Casemiro to be a success at Manchester United after he completed a £60m move from European champions Real Madrid

The 30-year-old, who is United’s latest signing under Erik ten Hag’s leadership, subsequently became the second most expensive over-30 player in history. Only future United — and former Los Blancos — teammate Cristiano Ronaldo has transferred for a bigger fee when he returned to Old Trafford from Juventus last summer.

Having won three La Liga crowns and five European Cup titles the native of São José dos Campos has opted for a new challenge in England and Fabinho, who briefly spent time with Casemiro in the Spanish capital, feels he would do well in his new surroundings.

“I played with him in Real Madrid’s second team and with the national team,” he told The Telegraph.

“He is a friend, we always have conversations and he is a good guy.

“Of course, he will be a good signing. Casemiro is a smart guy, he is a good player, he is strong, he is good in the air, so it will not be hard for him to adapt to the Premier League.”

His new club have begun the 2022/23 season on the backfoot. United head into matchday three, when they’ll host Liverpool at home, on a two-game losing streak. Ten Hag’s men suffered an opening weekend 2-1 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion before they were humbled 4-0 on the road at Brentford which saw them end that round of fixtures sitting bottom of the pile, something they’ve not experienced since August 1992.

Casemiro was not registered in time and will likely make his debut on August 27 when Southampton host the Red Devils at St Mary’s Stadium.
