Casillas Said No For 150 Million Euro !

Iker Casillas’ agent, Luis Garcia Abad, has disclosed to Cadena SER radio program ‘El Larguero’ (The Crossbar) that his client was approached by cashed-up Manchester City, who attempted to lure the Euro 2008-winning captain to the Barclays Premier League.

Iker Casillas Rejected Mega Manchester City Offer

According to Abad, the Abu Dhabi Investment Group-owned City had approached him directly three months ago with an offer to pay out Casillas’ buy-out clause worth €120 million while offering the player a €12 million net per season contract, reportedly double what he is currently earning with Los Blancos.

Casillas promptly said no, but his Middle-Eastern suitors returned with a new proposal just ten days ago, this time offering Real Madrid €150 million to sell their number one goalkeeper and €13 million net per year for the player himself. There was also believed to be an extra condition to sweeten the deal: Casillas would get to decide how long he wanted the contract to run for at City.

The offer was presented in writing to Abad, but he has not yet relayed it to Madrid simply because his client has roundly refused to consider a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
