Liverpool and Arsenal fans bring a very tense atmosphere to the Football Transfer Tavern after The Express revealed that both sides were ready to bid for Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas.
The two Premier League giants are favourites to snap him up as it looks likely that the 33-year-old is on his way out of the Bernabeu after becoming increasingly frustrated after being replaced by Keylor Navas in the first team for the midweek fixture against FC Basel.
Casillas has of course long been linked with a Premier League switch and because of this, our resident Reds and Gunners fans are still rather skeptical regarding the Spaniard realistically replacing either Simon Mignolet or Wojciech Szczesny.
These reports come after Casillas was only awarded one La Liga appearance last season after Diego Lopez – now of AC Milan – established himself as Ancelotti’s number one choice.
And with talks suggesting that Madrid are pursuing Manchester United’s David De Gea, Casillas’ future at Madrid looks bleak.
Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger are more than aware of the goalkeeper’s situation which is why they are both preparing bids of £4 million in time for the January transfer window.
Liverpool and Arsenal fans. Are you excited about these Iker Casillas links or do you fear that he has not recovered from his horrendous World Cup display? Let us know your thoughts below.
