Iker Casillas has been linked with a move to Barcelona, and it will be a good move for the Spanish goalkeeper, believes former Real Madrid and Valencia star Santiago Canizares.

Casillas had lost his starting position to Diego Lopez under Jose Mourinho the previous season.

It was widely believed that Casillas would regain his status as number one keeper under new manager Carlo Ancelotti. But the Italian's decision to bench the Spaniard may further force the him to look for a way out of Real Madrid.

And, Canizares believes that Casillas will benefit from a move to the Catalan giants in the ongoing transfer window.

Canizares told Cadena SER: "I don't see any problems if he were to leave Madrid for Barcelona.

"At Barcelona - and anywhere else in the world - he would get the recognition he deserves.

"What matters most is your job and if you can't do it at your current club, you will have to look elsewhere. If I were Casillas, I would start thinking about leaving Madrid. This situation is not normal.

"The current situation at Madrid is very uncomfortable for both goalkeepers. I have never thought that having two great shot-stoppers at one team was a good idea. Casillas is always the centre of attention at the moment."

Casillas currently has a contract with Real till 2017. But, with a World Cup year ahead of him, the Spaniard may prefer to move to another club to get more playing time and ensure that he starts for Spain between the sticks, next June.
