Man Utd giving Casemiro round-the-clock security and helping £70m star and family find new home | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED chiefs are beefing up security around their new midfield enforcer Casemiro.

SunSport can reveal ex-Real Madrid star Casemiro, 30, will have round-the-clock protection after arriving in England to start his Premier League career.

A source said: “This transfer may have come about quite quickly but bosses at United have been working around the clock to make sure everything’s in place to help their new man settle in quickly.

“He will initially stay in a hotel but the club are already helping him try to line up properties in the area. The club are also making sure he has security in place from the moment he touches down in the country and for when he finds his own place.

“A lot of foreign stars don’t appreciate the scale of the threats and risk that come from criminals targeting them off the field. United are leaving nothing to chance and making sure their new star signing gets all the protection he needs.”

Casemiro has followed the lead of ex-United star Wayne Rooney who stepped up security around his Cheshire mansion following his move to the US to manage DC United.

Rooney was concerned about the risks his wife and family might face from intruders so he wanted to make sure extra protection was in place.

Several Premier League players have been targeted in recent years by violent gangs – former United star Paul Pogba had his home raided and his safe stolen in March.

The north-west and Cheshire – where most of United’s players live – is a hot spot for incidents.

Casemiro was escorted into Old Trafford by security ahead of the win against Liverpool on Monday.
