Former Real Madrid and current Malaga manager Bernd Schuster has admitted he may not be too surprised if reported Arsenal target Iker Casillas leaves Real Madrid for another club. The Spanish international goal keeper is reportedly going increasingly frustrated with his lack of first team action with Real Madrid since March.
Casillas was dropped by the then Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho and has not been able to regain his standing slot from Diego Lopez who ousted him from the first team last season.
“I think Iker is the goalkeeper of Madrid and should be playing. I would understand if he wanted to leave in December.
“It’s very difficult for me to think and see Iker in a team other than the Real Madrid.”
Arsenal are obviously in the market for a new keeper with Wenger and his other coaches growing increasingly frustrated with the error prone nature of current first team keeper Szczensy.
However, for Arsenal to have a chance of signing the high rated Spanish, he must first show intent to leave and the gunners should be ready to pay as much as 20 million pounds as Real Madrid will never sell on the cheap.
The gunners are also interested in Stoke City’s Amir Begovic and QPR’s Julio Cesar
