Besitkas ‘make Iker Casillas move’


Turkish side Besiktas have made an offer for Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas, according to reports.

The club captain has maintained that despite a difficult relationship with the fans at times this season, and rumours Los Blancos want to sign David de Gea, that he wants to stay at the club he has played for since he was 18 years old.

But Madrid-based daily Marca says the Turkish outfit have offered Casillas a lucrative deal to prize him away from the Santiago Bernabeu. There is a major stumbling block, however, as they finished third in the league this season and are therefore not able to offer Casillas Champions League football.

Should Real decide to cash in on their captain, there would be no shortage of takers, with Liverpool and Arsenal believed to be on the lookout for a new number one this summer.

The 34-year-old has spent his entire career at the Santiago Bernabeu, making more than 700 appearances for Los Merengues. He has captained his team to success in the Champions League, La Liga, the Copa del Rey, European Super Cup and World Club Cup.

At international level, he has won the World Cup and two European Championships with La Roja.
