A one-club career man to date, it seems almost unfathomable that Iker Casillas would don the colours of anything other than Los Blancos when competing as footballer, however, a report in El Mundo Deportivo claims that the Spain legend - a three-time Champions League winner, two-time UEFA Euro winner and World Cup winner - is disenchanted with life at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
The news that Casillas may exit the club has long been reported, as the shot-stopper, an accomplished athlete with many years left at 33, participated in just two La Liga matches having fallen down the pecking order thanks to the regard Diego Lopez is held in by manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Earlier in the season, the British press (Daily Mirror) reported that representatives of Casillas had "sounded out" Arsenal and Manchester City, as both clubs were assessing their goalkeeping situation.
While the latter now appear content with Joe Hart, Arsene Wenger may be tempted to deal in Casillas in order to compete for the number one role with Wojciech Szczesny, as the Pole lost his deputy - Lukasz Fabianski - to Swansea City on a free transfer earlier this week.
Liverpool, according to reports, have been tracking additional goalkeepers, while Tottenham Hotspur may also delve into their cash funds in order to bring a true icon to England.
Should any Premier League club look to enter negotiations with Casillas, they may have to offer a rather handsome package in order to succeed at the negotiations table.
