Iker Casillas is wanted by a number of clubs despite declaring his intent to continue at Real Madrid next season.

The Spain international has reiterated his desire to see out his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu but Turkish giants Besiktas and Fenerbahçe are set to test the player’s, and the club’s, resolve this summer.

The 34-year-old wants to stay on at Madrid and officials high up have communicated to him that they want him to continue but the imminent arrival of Dave de Gea and Rafa Benitez as new coach could change the landscape.

De Gea will arrive as a No.1 and with Keylor Navas also still on the Bernabeu books Casillas could be the one move on, according to a report in Marca.

The Turkish duo are reported to be keen on the Madrid legend, while two English clubs, two Italian, one Spanish and one French club have also sounded their interest.
