Odds show Liverpool favourites to sign ex-Madrid ace Casillas


Liverpool are the most likely side to sign Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas when the transfer window opens, according to the latest odds.

The veteran shot-stopper received an ovation at Anfield after his final Champions League game and – having previously been linked with a Merseyside move – is now just 6/4 to team up with Jurgen Klopp.

Meanwhile, three other Premier League sides make up the top five teams most likely to make a move for the former Real Madrid ace.

Newcastle United are surprise 9/4 second favourites, ahead of Real Betis (3/1), Arsenal (4/1) and West Ham United (6/1).

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s not the first time Liverpool have been linked with Casillas, and the latest odds suggest a summer move way well be on the cards.”

Casillas made over 720 appearances for Real Madrid during a trophy-laden 16-year career with the La Liga giants.

The keeper won five La Ligas and three Champions League titles, while also winning the World Cup and two European Championships with Spain.
