Real Madrid chiefs push Casillas to end transfer talk

Real Madrid insiders want Iker Casillas to end speculation over his future. The club captain has been rocked by being dropped for the opening game of the season and is understood to be weighing up his options.

Casillas is open to moving to Manchester United or Manchester City, however Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is also interested and the Londoners represent the most realistic option for the Spain keeper.

Real chiefs are concerned that the controversy could affect the start of their season and want Casillas to end the transfer rumours by publicly declaring his commitment to the club.

However, since Sunday's win over Real Betis, Casillas has kept his own counsel, so only fueling the rumours of tension and unease inside the Madrid locker room.
