Spanish legend claims he told Real Madrid to make move for Man United star

Iker Casillas has revealed he recommended Manchester United star David De Gea to Real Madrid.

Casillas claims he championed the United No 1 when Real president Florentino Perez asked him which goalkeeper he would sign.

“Florentino once asked me if it were up to me, which keeper would I sign,” said the Real goalkeeping legend on the Daily Mirror website.

“I prefer Spanish keepers – Sergio Rico, Asenjo and De Gea. Right now, De Gea is the expert out of the three.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
