Arsenal & Manchester City are chasing Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas [Mundo Deportivo]
Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo have reported the unlikely story that Real Madrid goalie Iker Casillas could be set to leave the Bernabeu with Arsenal and Manchester City eager to sign the keeper.
The report in El Mundo Deportivo fails to feel credible with a lack of quotes and a heavy dose of ifs, buts and maybes.
According to the report, Arsenal are Manchester City are waiting from a signal from Casillas that he wants out of Madrid after the keeper has once again found himself playing second fiddle to Diego Lopes under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Arsenal are well known to be looking for extra keeper cover with only Wojciech Szczesny available in their squad, while Manuel Pellegrini is said to be considering goalie options after Joe Hart’s shakey start to the new Premier League season.
For the record, Casillas has a contract at Real Madrid until 2017.
Footage of an unhappy looking Iker Casillas refusing to warm up v Betis last week in La Liga can be seen below.
