Carlos Henrique José Francisco Venâncio Casimiro (born 23 February 1992), known as Casemiro, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for F.C. Porto on loan from Real Madrid as a defensive midfielder.
In late January 2013 Casemiro was loaned to Real Madrid in Spain, being assigned to the B-team in Segunda División. He played his first game in the competition on 16 February, starting in a 1–3 defeat at CE Sabadell FC.
Casemiro made his La Liga debut on 20 April 2013, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–1 home win over Real Betis. On 10 June the move was made permanent, for four years and a reported fee of €6 million.
After appearing with the under-20s at the 2011 South American U-20 Championship, Casemiro made his debut for the Brazilian full side on 14 September 2011 in a 0–0 draw against Argentina, aged just 19.
