Casemiro spoke at an event for NordicLife water in Madrid on Thursday afternoon and said Paul Pogba would be welcome at Real Madrid.

The Brazilian was asked about the current rumours circulating about the Manchester United midfielder with Le Parisien reporting during the week that he wants to leave England for Spain.

“He's a world class player at his level can play in any team," Casemiro assured. "If he comes to Madrid he would be warmly welcomed, we know he is a great player. For sure he is currently thinking about his next UCL game, that is type of person he is. We must respect Man Utd also."

Casemiro also spoke about Gareth Bale and Marcelo, who have struggled through mediocre and at times very difficult seasons with the Welsh man being whistled by his own fans and the Brazilian being fingered for many of Real Madrid's shortcomings in defense.

"We can not talk about Marcelo's season," he said. "Because we have all failed." 

The left-back, linked with a move out of Real Madrid remains a "great person and player" according to his teammate and compartiot. He also said something similar about Bale. "When one of us are whistled then we are all whistled," he said with Bale being targetted by the home crowd at the Bernabéu in recent weeks and a departure looking like in the summer too.
