Premier League giants Arsenal and Manchester City are believed to be on high alert after it emerged that they may finally get their chance to snap up Real Madrid goalkeeper in the January transfer window, the Daily Star reports.

The 32-year-old is growing increasingly disillusioned with life at the Santiago Bernabeu as he is unable to regain his place back in the side from former deputy Diego Lopez.

Madrid are believed to have offered the Spanish international to Arsenal during the summer transfer window, but Wenger decided against making a swoop for him.

The Gunners are still thought to be keen on bringing him on board, though, but Manchester City’s Jesus Navas is hoping that his club will be able to jump to the front of the queue.

“We all know the great keeper that Iker is and the importance he has within the team.

“At City we have great keepers, but Iker would be a great addition.”

And Now Casillas has opened the door to speculation by admitting that it may finally be time to move on after failing to impress new coach Carlo Ancelotti.

“If a player isn’t in the action then he starts to think about making a decision,” he told reporters.

“I’m human and I’m a footballer. I haven’t played for nine months now and it’s the same for me. I’m not a robot.

“Of course I want to stay here and win more titles with Real Madrid. I’ve been here since I was little, but there will come a day in which I have to take a decision.

“As of now my decision is to stay and fight, to struggle and play every day. If I wasn’t sure about it I would have told the president I wanted to leave in September.

“That being said, if in three months things haven’t changed and you ask me the same question, well maybe I’ll be thinking about leaving.”
