Casillas could be on the way out of the Bernabeu.
After becoming second string to Diego Lopez at Real Madrid, Real Madrid club captain Iker Casillas is considering a move to Arsenal, according to El Confidencial.
The 32-year-old Spain international has become the backup at the Santiago Bernabeu since Carlo Ancelotti took over as manager in the summer and Casillas is looking to leave Madrid after 14 years in the first team.
The goalkeeper has skippered the national team to successive European Championship wins and their first ever World Cup, but Ancelotti has limited the stopper to Champions League appearances.
This is noticeably frustrating Casillas and the Spaniard has been targeted by several top sides as a result.
Arsene Wenger is one of those who has been keeping tabs on the veteran, although the need for a new ‘keeper has lessened since the improved form of Wojciech Szczesny.
The Pole was criticised last term for being erratic, but this season the 23-year-old has looked strong between the sticks and has been one of the north London club’s best players.
In fact Szczesny has been so good that on-loan Palermo star Emiliano Viviano hasn’t even played a game yet since joining the team.
Casillas meanwhile is an attractive prospect regardless, due to Los Blancos skipper’s vast experience on both the domestic and international stage.
As well as playing 604 matches for Madrid in all competitions since 1999, the ‘keeper is also Spain’s most capped player in history with 150.
