eal Madrid midfielder Luka Modric says the blow of losing Casemiro to Manchester United has been softened.
Despite Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti being more than willing to allow his former teammate to move to Old Trafford, Modric has said that Casemiro was an important player for the La Liga giants.
Speaking to Real Madrid TV, the former Tottenham man said: “We’ve started really well this year and we have a strong team.
“In midfield, we lost an important player in Casemiro, but we’ve got a lot of other good players to replace him and do a good job. [Aurelien] Tchouameni has adapted really well. This is [Eduardo] Camavinga’s second year and he had a great first year. [Toni] Kroos has been here for a long time. [Federico] Valverde is also doing really well in any position. [Dani] Ceballos is helping the team a lot.
“We’re well equipped in this position.”
