Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has opened up about his future after reports of the Spanish giants’ interest in Manchester United keeper David de Gea.

The 33-year-old has regained his place in Madrid’s starting eleven after a number of years playing behind the likes of Antonio Adan and Diego Lopez, mainly under Jose Mourinho.

Casillas has been an ever present in Madrid success since he made his senior debut in 1999, helping them win three Champions League trophies and five La Liga titles.

However, the Spanish club are said to be keen to offload him this coming summer and replace him with Manchester United’s David de Gea, who continues to stall on a new deal at Old Trafford.

Their interest in the former Atletico Madrid keeper has led Casillas to discuss a potential move to Major League Soccer, telling the Wall Street Journal: “I have no problem of saying that I would like to play in the U.S.”
