Iker Casillas1 Wenger calls Real Madrid superstar to convince him joining Arsenal

Mundo Deportivo reckons that Casillas might leave Real Madrid in the summer. He has lost the regular starting position in the Madrid team while had a poor World Cup in Brazil which could prompt him to move elsewhere.

Casillas and his partner, journalist Sara Carbonero, both are big fan of London and make frequent trips to the capital of England. Therefore, should he leaves Real Madrid, his preferred destination will be London, and more precisely Arsenal. Wenger is trying his best to persuade Casillas to join him at the Emirates where he will be united with two of his good pals – Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil.

The Londoners are looking to reinforce their goal keeping department following the departure of Fabianski to Swansea. Wenger is also thought to be interested in Colombian goal keeper David Ospina, who has performed superbly in the World Cup so far.

    he is probably the best keeper in the word .
    you dont loose that overnight and with the arsenal fans behind the move we could see him in an arsenal ,puma shirt for years to come .
