Both Morata and Casemiro have signed their contracts to leave the Santiago Bernabéu today. While Morata has signed for Juventus, the Brazilian midfielder joins FC Porto on loan, according to Real Madrid's official announcement of the deal.

Real Madrid and FC Porto have reached an agreement for Casemiro's loan for the 2014-2015 season. FC Porto keeps a buyback option for the end of next season. If the Portuguese club buys the player, Real Madrid will have a buyback option for the future as well.

The fees of both buyback options have not been announced.

Casemiro will be able to get some good minutes in FC Porto, and it will be interesting to see his development after a season in which he struggled at getting playing time. Still, he had some very valuable minutes, especially against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal-Iduna Park. Casemiro will likely be a starter for FC Porto next season.
