4. 00:21 SOUNDBITE (Spanish): Casemiro, Real Madrid:
(about Real Madrid's current situation)
"Real Madrid always returns. We are getting 'some air' (slang) to come back. We still have seven games to go and we know they are very important and we have to do the best because in this club, although La Liga (title) is a bit far away, this club demands you to do the best always and not only in the matches, also in training. Then Real Madrid is obliged to do things well and always do the best. What I always say is, Real Madrid always comes back and we are getting 'some air' to come back even stronger."

6. 01:16 SOUNDBITE (Spanish): Casemiro, Real Madrid:
(about whether Neymar would like to sign for Real Madrid)
"As I said, he is a great player without a doubt. But it is a question for the president (of the club) and above all Neymar should answer."
(Q: Do you think he would like to come here?)
"You should ask him. I think he gave some statements recently because he is happy in Paris and we have to respect him and the Paris (Paris Saint-Germain). A player like him is indispensable in any team, but we can not talk about a player who is not here. But without a doubt he is a great player and it is a pleasure to play with him in the national team."

8. 02:12 SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Casemiro, Real Madrid:
(about whether he would like to play with Paul Pogba)
"A player of his level is compatible with any player in the world. We know he is a great player, but we can not talk about a player who is not here with the team. We know that if he comes to Madrid he will be very welcome because we know he is a great player. He has another very important match in the Champions (League) and he is thinking about that game. He is a great person and we have to respect him and respect Manchester (United)."

10. 02:55 SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Casemiro, Real Madrid:
(about the booing of Gareth Bale at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and if he is okay)
"I think that Bale is an experienced player and he knows how to deal with that. Of course it is something that affects a player, but also affects all of us. When (fans) boo a player, they boo all of us because we are a group and we are a team. Of course it affects a player, but we all feel very uncomfortable. But in this club they demand you to give your best and we have to work. What we can not forget is that Bale in this club has given us many titles and has made many goals. It may be that we're not having a good season, but we think of everyone."
