Casillas rejects City mega bid

Table of Contents
Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has revealed through his agent that Manchester City were ready to pay him up to €13 million a year - which would make him the highest paid footballer in the world.

His agent, Luis Garcia Abad, has disclosed to radio station Cadena SER that the Abu Dhabi Investment Group which owns City were prepared to pay out Casillas’ buy-out clause worth €120 million while offering the player a €12 million net per season contract, reportedly double what he is currently earning with Los Merengues.

The Spain international promptly rejected the offer, but ten days later his Middle-Eastern suitors returned with an improved offer of €150 million and €13 million net per year for the player himself.

There was also believed to be an extra condition to sweeten the deal: Casillas would get to decide how long he wanted the contract to run for at City.

The offer was presented in writing to Abad, but he is yet to pass it onto Real as his client has refused to consider a move away from the Bernabéu, saying he wants to finish his career at Real.

Despite the failure, it is a clear sign the Abu Dhabu United Group are intent on taking the club to a new level.
