Gunners set to bid for Real Madrid Legend
According to Sports Direct News, Arsenal are preparing a bid for Real Madrid star Iker Casillas.
The Gunner’s defence has lacked solidity in recent years, and their back-line was found wanting once again against Aston Villa last weekend. Neither Szczesny nor Fabianski have impressed in recent matches, and Arsene Wenger is apparently keen to bolster his lacklustre defence.
32 year old Casillas nearly departed Real Madrid last season following a well-documented falling out with Jose Mourinho. It had appeared that Casillas was set to regain his position as number 1 following the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as manager.
However, Ancelotti has seemingly vindicated Mourinho’s decisions at Real Madrid, and picked Diego Lopez to start against Real Betis last Sunday. As such, the Spanish international has reportedly resolved to leave his boyhood club.
Arsenal would likely have to pay a sum in the region of £20m for the goalkeeper, a tidy sum considering his age. However, there is no denying his capabilities, and Arsenal are certainly in need of an experienced head at the back.
