Iker Casillas ‘highly unlikely’ to seal reunion with Rafael Benitez at Newcastle United – Transfer report
Wednesday, December 6, 2017
Iker Casillas is “highly unlikely” to link up with Rafael Benitez at Newcastle, according to reports in Spain.
The former Real Madrid stopper, who currently plies his trade for Portuguese giants Porto, has been touted for a move to England in recent months.
Benitez is understood to have a strong relationship with the experienced World Cup winner and has been linked with bringing him to St. James’ Park.
However, according to Mundo Deportivo, Casillas is unlikely to make the move but could still leave Porto during the mid-season window.
The Portuguese giants are looking to avoid Financial Fair Play penalties and could be forced to ship Casillas out in order to avoid any long-term implications.
