Madrid want Casillas alternative

Real Madrid are reported once more as studying the transfer market to find a goalkeeper for next season to compete with Iker Casillas.

Reports have been running through the season of Jose Mourinho’s desire to introduce stronger competition for the captain between the sticks.

AS are running the line today that Antonio Adan, who deputised for the dropped Casillas at the weekend, has been identified as too far below Casillas’ level to offer consistent competition, so the club are looking at options in the market.

It is understood that the club are keen to offer Casillas healthier competition for his No 1 shirt, rather than find a replacement for him.
