Liverpool and Arsenal are both considering a move for Real Madrid ace Iker Casillas after the Spain captain implied he could play in the English Premier League, Daily Star reports.
After playing second fiddle to Diego Lopez for much of last season, Casillas was heavily linked with a move away from Madrid in order to retain his position ahead of the World Cup.
Premier League duo Liverpool and Arsenal were keen on signing the 33-year-old shot-stopper, with both clubs planning offers during the summer transfer window.
However with Lopez now plying his trade with AC Milan, Casillas has resumed his role as Los Blancos’ number one while Costa Rican signing Keylor Navas is used as his backup.
Although Casillas currently wants to stay in Spain, he revealed that he has considered playing in the Premier League before he hangs up his gloves.
He recently said: “I’ve thought about leaving Spain. I don’t want to rub anyone the wrong way or create a bad air, because you always want Madrid to win.
“But then you think: “I have to compete and fight.” These past two years have made me fight and become stronger. I haven’t made any indication I want to leave.
“I never had a concrete offer. My idea was, and still is, to finish my career here.”
