Casillas targeted by Manchester United and Manchester City
Monday 28 June 2010
Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas has confirmed that he is a target for both Manchester United and Manchester City.
The 29-year-old has spent the whole of his career to date at the Santiago Bernabeu and is in no rush to leave, unless Real decide to cash in.
Casillas, told the Daily Star Sunday: “I am aware of the interest of both Manchester United and City. I'm always flattered whenever another club shows interest in my qualities as a goalkeeper.
“I have been at Real Madrid all my career and I still enjoy going to training every day. I enjoy meeting the fans too, but we all know how uncertain things are in football.
“I'm not going to say never. Right now Madrid would have to kick me out of the club before I consider a move.
“Who knows what will happen, though, if a big-money offer comes in.”
Atletico Madrid’s Uruguay striker Diego Forlan has dismissed rumours linking him with a summer move to Italy to join Juventus.
The 31-year-old is reported to be of interest to the Turin giants, but former Villarreal frontman Forlan says that he is more than content to remain at the Vicente Calderon next season and beyond.
He told AS: “Juventus are an important team, but it's just speculation.
“I spoke with Atletico's president, but we did not speak about this. It was a normal conversation.
“I have another three years left on my deal here and I am happy. I like it here and I am very well. That's the truth.”
