Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is keeping an eye on Iker Casillas’ situation at Real Madrid, as he may move for a new goalkeeper in the January transfer window, according to Sports Direct News.

The Chilean is concerned about the poor recent form of current first-choice goalkeeper Joe Hart, who endured another nightmare performance in Wednesday night’s 3-1 home defeat to European champions Bayern Munich.

Hart seemed to go through a poor spell at points last season, though it seems increasingly likely that this run of form may continue to be a permanent decline, and as such would lead City to consider other options in the transfer market.

Casillas could be the ideal choice, as he currently finds himself out of favour with Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, who has kept him on the bench behind Diego Lopez in goal.

£20m might be enough to tempt the Spanish giants to selling the 32-year-old, who will be keen to be playing regular first-team football ahead of next summer’s World Cup, where he will be hoping to both start for and captain current holders Spain.

Pellegrini briefly worked with Casillas in his one season in charge of Real Madrid in 2009/10.
