Casillas exit will force Real Madrid to push on with pursuit of Man Utd keeper De Gea

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea appears set to complete his move to Real Madrid.

It is believed that Real will step up their pursuit of Spaniard De Gea following confirmation of Iker Casillas' departure to FC Porto.

The Daily Mail is reporting that De Gea is pleased with how negotiations are progressing between the two heavyweight clubs as a resolution draws near.

Madrid also appear likely to sign Espanyol shot-stopper Kiko Casilla, but it is understood they are looking to offload back-up keeper Keylor Navas to make room for De Gea.

Casillas, who made 510 appearances for Real Madrid, will reportedly receive a hero's farewell from the club on Friday, before completing his free transfer to Portugal.
