Casemiro, who joined Madrid from Sao Paulo in 2013, has won three La Liga titles, five Champions Leagues, a Copa del Rey, three UEFA Super Cups and three FIFA Club World Cups.

The Brazil international has also managed to establish himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world.

According to reports, United are set to pay Madrid an initial Β£50.7million for Casemiro and the deal also includes Β£8.5million in add-ons. The 30-year-old has agreed to sign a four-year contract at Old Trafford, but how does he compare to the options currently at Erik ten Hag's disposal?

We've compared Casemiro's 2021-22 La Liga stats to the corresponding Premier League stats of United's current central midfield options.
