Casemiro surprised at how quickly hes settled in at Manchester United following move from Real Madrid You wont believe how happy I am

Manchester United midfielder Casemiro couldnt be happier with how his start to life at Old Trafford has gone.

Whenthe Brazilian first arrived from Real Madrid in the summer, he was working hard to adapt to English football as he tried to get into Erik ten Hags side.

Now, the 30-year-old has cemented his spot in the starting XI and has even been nominated for Man Uniteds Player of The Month award for October.

And apparently Casemiro is over the moon with how hes getting on at Old Trafford and how supportive everyone at the club has been.

I actually spoke to Casemiro after the Chelsea match and he said to me that his adaptation couldnt be better,ESPN Brazil reporter Natalie Gedra told the UTD podcast.

He said that since the start, even if he wasnt playing, the coaching staff was talking to him all the time, talking about the Premier League, talking about the team, making him feel comfortable and the club has been amazing to him, making him feel like a part of all this.

He is settling in really well and he feels very comfortable on the pitch. I think the language is still something he is probably working on, but he definitely feels comfortable in terms of football and the people around him. He is very happy.

I was really surprised with how happy he is, she continued before clarifying: There is nothing wrong with Manchester, absolutely nothing, but he was just so delighted.

He was like, you will not believe how happy I am here at Man United and after so many years in Madrid, to settle in so quickly is quite surprising.

It took the five-time Champions League winner until the beginning of October against Everton to make his full Premier League debut, with his only other start coming in the 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad in September.

Since then, though, Casemiro hasnt lost his place in Erik ten Hags starting XI, and has been a key part of Uniteds spike in form as their defensive midfielder.

The Brazilian even scored against Chelsea in their 1-1 draw last month.

The days of fans and pundits questioningwhy Man United bought Casemiro for 60million just to leave him on the bench seem a distant memory now.

But Gedra explained that over in Brazil, people were confused by the stars move to begin with.

It was huge, definitely, it was huge, Gedra explained. Nobody was expecting it, it was a big surprise for everyone and especially because he was such a big player for Real Madrid.

Nobody expected him to leave there ever. When he came, there was a bit of questioning. So it was big.

There were a lot of questions around how Casemiro would adapt to such a big league like the Premier League, especially under the circumstances that he arrived because Man United was not doing well and Real Madrid was in a very stable situation.

Nobody really questioned that he would make things work because we know Casemiro so well and we know the type of player he is. We are not surprised that he is delivering but we were surprised by the move, definitely.

Now, though, Man United and Casemiro seem to be the perfect match.

Casemiro is set to return to Spain with Man United on Thursday for his sides Europa League clash against Real Sociedad.You can listen to the game live on talkSPORT 2 from 7pm.
