Casillas confirms Man Utd offer
By:
ThinkSpain , Monday, March 28, 2005

Real Madrid´s young international keeper, Iker Casillas, has confirmed that his agents have received an offer from Manchester Utd., who are rumoured to be actively trying to recruit for a replacement for Roy Carroll, who has yet to sign a new contract, and Spain´s Ricardo, who has struggled to establish himself in the first team squad.

Casillas is quoted as saying that the Old Trafford outfit is one of the few clubs that might tempt him away from the Bernabeu, "For a long time Manchester United have been interested in me. An offer has been put to my agent but, for me, money is not everything in life. There are a lot of questions to be answered before I could leave Madrid but I like The Premiership and United is one of the few clubs that I would go to if I were to leave Spain. That is because of its history, tradition, supporters and the way they treat their players. I've spoken with Sir Alex Ferguson several times after matches and I know that he likes me." 

Manchester Utd., reported to be only planning one major signing this summer, is thought to be prepared to offer Casillas a weekly salary of around €105,000 (€5.5 million a year), which would make him one of their best paid players. Given that Casillas´s current contract does not expire until June 2006, Manchester Utd. may be forced to wait until the season after next if Real Madrid´s wealthy backers prove unable to offer him a deal to keep him at the club.
