Casillas ‘has received offers’

AS report that Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has received offers to leave Los Blancos in the summer.

The goalkeeper is enduring an indifferent final few months of the season, having been dropped by Coach Jose Mourinho at the turn of the year, then spent two months out injured with a fractured hand, only to see his return to full fitness met with a place back on the bench.

AS say that Casillas, who has spent his entire career at Madrid, has had offers to leave, with Arsenal and Liverpool specifically named.

They follow on from and reiterate the Daily Mail’s assertion from earlier this week that the Gunners will come forward with a €20m bid in the summer, with Arsene Wenger seen as a keen admirer.

Liverpool are also understood to be prepared to come in with an offer to match their Premier League rivals.

Casillas is quoted by AS as having reportedly told close friends that if his current situation with Mourinho continues, then he will have to consider ‘a change of scenery’.
