Real Madrid's former number one has barely seen any minutes this season.
Don't for one minute think that this move will never happen. The same was said about Luis Figo before he signed for Real Madrid.
The plain fact of the matter is that a goalkeeper of Iker Casillas' stature should not be on the sidelines week after week.
Diego Lopez has certainly grabbed his chance with both hands, but Madrid's former No. 1, is far too good to be keeping the bench company.
It surely wouldn't be too much of a surprise if Casillas looks to pastures new, and why wouldn't he go to Barca?
They could satisfy his professional ambitions, pay his salary without any problem and there would be no settling in issues, given he knows most of the Barcelona team from their games with the Spanish national team.
Casillas himself told reporters, per Dermot Corrigan ESPN:
I do not have any idea what can happen in one year, or two or three.
It is very difficult, as I have said before. There are others [out of the team] also, and we need to see it as a challenge and try and compete and play more. I will continue to fight to make it difficult for the coach.
I am ready for whenever the coach and my teammates need me.
Of course if I was playing more regularly I would be better, but I have to take advantage of the chances I get.
