Casillas denies interest from Manchester United
Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has heard nothing from Manchester United or any other club about a possible transfer and sees his long-term future at the Bernabeu.
Reports in the both the Spanish and English media suggested United were looking to invest some of the £80million they are set to receive from Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo on Euro 2008 winner Casillas.
However, Casillas was quoted by AS as saying: "There is absolutely nothing, neither from United nor another club. Neither my agent nor Madrid have informed me of any offer, and nobody has called me either.
"It's speculation, which is what happens when the transfer market is open."
The 28-year-old has been part of the scene at home-town club Madrid for almost two decades now and he has been a regular in the senior side since making his debut in 1999.
In February 2008 he penned a new contract, tying him to the Spanish giants until the completion of the 2016/17 season, and the Spain captain insists he is looking to see the deal through.
"I have a contract with Madrid until 2017 and what I'm thinking about is completing it. Everybody knows Madrid are in my heart and that I'm a White until I die.
"I joined Real Madrid as a child and Madrid is my home."
Casillas also had a message for Madrid fans who might be fearing he could be on his way out of the club, saying: "The fans should be calm, there is nothing at all from Manchester (United) or any other club. I'm from Spain and from Madrid, and that's it."
Casillas is set to lead Spain in tonight's Confederations Cup semi-final against USA in South Africa, and it is that match that the vastly experienced custodian says his focus is on rather than transfer rumours or about how big-spending Madrid will do next season.
"There will be time to talk (about Madrid) when the Confederations Cup is over. I'm here to defend the Spain shirt, which I do every day with more pride and responsibility. This is the only thing that concerns me now," he said.
"(I'm concerned about) beating the United States to be able to play in the Confederations Cup final and win the title.
"It would be nice to clinch another success with the national team just a year after winning the European Championships."
