Real Madrid star Iker Casillas has been told by the club’s hierarchy that his contract will not be renewed, and that they would prefer to sell him at the end of the season if possible, as reported by fichajes.net.
Casillas had been hopeful of renewing his contract, but with the club clearly not interested, he is not willing to sit around next season as backup either, meaning that a transfer would be ideal for both parties.
Real have even begun looking for another goalkeeper to replace Casillas, who will compete with Keylor Navas for the first team role next season.
This will put both Arsenal and Liverpool on red alert, with both clubs thought to be looking for another goalkeeper.
Arsenal saw summer recruit David Ospina suffer an immediate injury, putting him out for a length of time.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has also reportedly lost faith in current first choice Simon Mignolet.
