AC Milan join race for Manchester City target

Published Add your comment

AC Milan are set to rival the likes of Manchester City and United for Real Madrid's Iker Casillas, according to talkSPORT.

The 32-year-old Spain captain has seen his spot in the starting XI handed to Diego Lopez and subsequently failed to start a single La Liga game yet this term.

This has sparked interest from a number of top European sides, with both Manchester clubs showing an apparent interest in his availability, particularly Manchester City.

And now AC Milan have added their names to the list of pursuing clubs, with their need stemming from the advancing years of current 'keeper, 36-year-old Christian Abbiati.

Certain reports have surfaced claiming that the San Siro side have already contacted the World Cup winner's representatives to sound them out about his current situation and the feasibility of any move.

Manchester City are thought to also be moving forward with their attempts, with Casillas' compatriot and current City winger, Jesus Navas, said to have spoken to the goalkeeper and encouraged a move to the Etihad.
