TVE claim that Casillas will say his farewell to his boyhood club within the next few months, and has offers from 10 clubs to decide between.

Fenerbahce are rumoured to be leading the chase for his signature, having tabled the most financially favourable offer, but the 34-year-old is eager to continue playing at the highest level.

The broadcaster reports that the Spanish goalkeeper had no intention to leave Madrid in this transfer window, but the imminent arrival of David De Gea caused him to reevaluate his future.

The Daily Star reported on Wednesday morning that Los Blancos had agreed a £22.1m deal with Manchester United for their no.1 – after the Spaniard told Louis van Gaal that he wished to return to Madrid. With one year remaining on his current Old Trafford contract, the Red Devils are not willing to lose their stopper on a free at the end of next season.

The deal is not about money for De Gea; with the British newspaper claiming that the former Atleti star has accepted wages of £85,000 per-week – far inferior to the £200,000 per-week that United had offered.
