If you claim to accomplish great things, to mark the history of your sport, there is no better. So I didn’t hesitate for a second. I told my agent: as long as there is interest, we do everything to go there. I was already conditioned. When Paris showed up, my choice was already made, even if I was happy to be approached by PSG. confided Aurélien Tchouaméni, who can now be satisfied with his choice since a few weeks after his signing at Real Madrid, Casemiro left Casa Blanca to join Manchester United.
