Real Madrid star should choose Arsenal over Manchester City

The future of Real Madrid shot-stopper Iker Casillas has continuously been discussed of late. 

The Spanish international has had a hard time of it at the Bernabeu in the past year or so, having been dropped from the side and picking up many niggling injuries. 

Reports have suggested that Premier League duo Arsenal and Manchester City are interested in taking the keeper to England. 

But if the keeper is set to leave Spain for England, there is only one team he should choose. 

And that's Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side. 

The Gunners have only recently recruited from Carlo Ancelotti's team, having taken Mesut Ozil to north London. 

And now they should head to Madrid again in order to bring in a world-class goalkeeper.

The signing of Ozil was a real statement from Wenger. In bringing him to north London, the club now look a threat again in the Premier League title race.

And completing a deal for Casillas would make them even stronger.

It would also benefit the Spanish star. If he opted for Arsenal, then he would be near enough guaranteed the No.1 spot at the Emirates. 

And, with the World Cup only around the corner, the Spaniard needs to be the main man at his club. 

It looks unlikely that he will get that at Real and his life wouldn't be made much easier if he joined Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City. 

Just imagine if he was competing with Joe Hart for the No.1 jersey at the Etihad.

The England goalkeeper and the Spanish goalkeeper would be going head-to-head and it probably wouldn't do either of them much good ahead of Brazil next year. 

Whereas at the Emirates, Casillas could thrive under Wenger. Working alongside the French tactician could rejuvenate one of the finest keepers of the last decade.

He would be entering a team hungry for success and could bring his experience and leadership to the side and help them return to dominance in England's elite division.  

It's a win-win situation for both Arsenal and Casillas. Wenger should head back to Spain in January and take with him another superstar.
