Man City Ask Casillas to Join Them
The new Premier League big spenders, Manchester City have made an attempt to coax Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, to come to northern England. Not surprisingly, he said he wouldn't leave the two-time La Liga champions for a club that is barely keeping themselves in the middle of the Premier League table. I must admit that I think the Manchester City owners are leaning towards delusional in attmepting to get Casillas out of Spain.
They offered him £128million, which would come to an annual salary of £11million and a weekly pull of £230,000. That would make him the highest paid player in the world. Don't get me wrong, I think he's worth it, but Manchester City are in major denial if they think they can get him to come to the club with just money in mind. Needless to say, Iker and his agent rejected the bid and now Man City won't even have an opportunity to seek a formal bid with Real Madrid. Wishful thinking though guys.
