International

Arsenal And City Monitor Casillas

Arsenal and Manchester City are reportedly paying close attention to Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

The 32-year-old Spaniard lost his first team place to Diego Lopez under Jose Mourinho last season and new Real coach, Carlo Ancelotti, has not re-aligned the sides' goalkeeping order.

Casillas has spent his entire career at the Spanish capital, but has become increasingly frustrated with his situation – particularly since he is also at risk of losing his place in Spain’s national team for the 2014 World Cup next summer.

Casillas has played Real’s Champions League games but wants to consider a move to get regular first team football, and Arsenal and Manchester City are the two big teams who are currently linked to the Spanish international.

Arsenal’s Woyzeck Szczesny, 23, has been impressive so far this season, but Arsene Wenger may still want put a more experienced goalkeeper in his starting XI.

Manchester City are also keeping an eye on Casillas with City coach Pellegrini not impressed with England goalkeeper, Joe Hart, who's had some shambling displays in the beginning of the season.

So far, Casillas has always declared he wants to fight for his place at the only club of his career, but it will be interesting to see his response if Arsenal or City would make a move in January.

Should Casillas stay at Real and fight for his place or is he too good to sit on the bench? Have your say in the comment section below.
