Real Madrid loan Casemiro to FC Porto
Real Madrid said Saturday it was loaning Brazilian midfielder Casemiro to FC Porto for one year.
The 22-year-old Casemiro played 25 games for Madrid in 2013-2014, but only started four of those. Competition for Real midfield places is heating up with the arrival of German World Cup winner Toni Kroos this week.
The Real-Porto accord includes an option to buy. Porto have already bought Dutch defender Bruno Martins Indi this week and taken attacker Cristian Tello on a two year loan from Barcelona.
