Inter Milan are watching Real Madrid young products very closely, hoping those who don’t get enough minutes of action might seek to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, opening a door for the Italians to bring them.
Italian press reported a few days ago the Neroazzurri are planning to seduce Jese Rodriguez to join them, and now it has been revealed they are also pursuing Casemiro’s signing.
Apparently Roberto Mancini is seeking to reinforce his midfield and he’s written the Brazilian’s name at the top of his wish-list.
The 23-year-old is one of the most promising holding midfielders in Europe. Many expected him to leave on loan this summer, given the high competency for minutes of action in Real Madrid’s midfield. However, he has become a crucial piece of Rafa Benitez’s rotation, even starting in the most important games of the season.
Against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, he put in a superb performance, helping Los Blancos secure one clean sheet more and keep the first position of their Champions League group.
Casemiro was close to completing a loan move to Inter in the summer of 2014, but he ended up signing for Porto, where he spend one successful season before Real Madrid exercised their buy-back option in July 2015.
