The Past Is Irrelevant: That’s a Terrible Buy

The legendary Jamie Carragher has criticized Manchester United for their signing of Casemiro in 2022, implying that it was a panic move from the club. He also mentioned that Erik ten Hag, the club’s manager, has been given too much control over transfer deals. Manchester United acquired Casemiro from Real Madrid for £70 million last year. Despite his promising start with the Red Devils, Casemiro has struggled this season with injuries and inconsistent performances. Carragher boldly claimed that signing Casemiro was a terrible business decision. He also criticized Ten Hag for favoring players from the Dutch League and those he has previously worked with. Manchester United’s recent 3-3 draw against Galatasaray leaves them in a precarious position in the Champions League group stage, as they need a win against Bayern Munich and other results to go their way in order to advance.
