Iker Casillas heading to MLS?


Rumors continue to swirl around a possible move by Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas to the MLS this summer.

Multiple reports say Casillas, 33, has been told by his current club Porto that he is free to lead at the end of the season. New York City FC seems the likely spot for the former Real Madrid keeper.

“I have no problem of saying that I would like to play in the U.S.,” Casillas told The Wall Street Journal. “This has been a tough past year and a half, but it has made me tougher mentally.

“At the club level, Real Madrid winning lifted a huge burden,” he told WSJ. “We’d been 12 years without winning [Champions League] and we’re lucky that we’ve won many titles recently when there had been 30 or so years when Real Madrid hadn’t won. That took the pressure off us and helped us move forward.”
