Why Xavi Asked For Casemiro’s Permission to Name Busquests The Best Defensive Midfielder

Casemiro has proved himself to be the best defensive midfielder in the whole of Europe, with his statistics saying all about him. Xavi on his part didn’t fail to realize this and that was the reason why he had to ask for the Brazilian’s permission to name his star the best defensive midfielder ahead of him
