Brazil midfielder Casemiro informed Manchester United that he needed to know information about where he would live, train, and play when he was negotiating a transfer.
The defensive anchorman signed from Real Madrid in a surprise deal over the summer.
Despite a slow start to life at United, Casemiro eventually showed his class before the World Cup break.
The Manchester Evening News states that while Casemiro does not speak great English, he spoke to United officials via FaceTime through translators.
He asked United football director John Murtough questions about where he would live, where he would be training, and the position where he would play.
Casemiro left Real after a glittering spell that included winning four Champions League trophies.
