Four Man United stars called up by Brazil manager Tite
Brazil manager Tite has called up four Manchester United players for the final two international friendlies against Ghana and Tunisia before the World Cup.
Casemiro and Fred have been mainstays in Tite’s midfield over a number of years, and there are no surprises that the duo have made the 26-man squad.
The former has had an unfavourable start to his United career with just one start in four appearances, and he has yet to replicate his form from his Real Madrid days.
Despite this, he has been an undisputed starter for the national side. Both him and Fred have a terrific partnership together. Hopefully, we see the same at United soon.
Aside from the duo, Antony has also been included among nine forwards. The 22-year-old missed the June internationals as he was carrying an ankle injury.
He has now made an instant return to the Tite’s squad and it is certainly well-deserved, considering his early season form at Ajax before scoring on his Red Devils debut.
Alex Telles, who is currently on loan at Sevilla, is the other player to have made the cut. The left-back recently said that his move was influenced by the World Cup.
The 29-year-old technically remains a United player with no buy option included, and we are happy for him to have got the nod from Tite for a third straight occasion.
