Real Madrid completes Casemiro signing

The Brazilian has inked a four-year deal with Los Blancos after spending last season on loan from Sao Paulo with the youth team.

Brazil starlet Casemiro has signed a permanent deal with Real Madrid after the club activated his 6 million euro release clause.

The 18-year-old joined the Madrid Castilla on loan from Sao Paulo in December, and he made 15 appearances for the club, including one showing for the senior side against Betis in April.

The club released an official statement on its website to confirm the news, revealing that the player has penned a four-year deal with last season's Liga runner-up after. An attacking midfielder, Casemiro, who has 15 caps to his name for the Brazil Under-20 side, becomes Madrid's second signing of the summer after fullback Dani Carvajal rejoined Los Blancos from Bayer Leverkusen.
