Iker Casillas To Miss 6-10 Weeks

Real Madrid's captain had to leave the game after Arbeloa kicked his hand, and he could be out of the pitch up to 10 weeks. That means his team would have to play against Manchester United and Barcelona with reserve goalkeeper Antonio Adán. Real Madrid could be searching for a cheap goalkeeper these remaining days of the transfer window.

In a very unfortunate play, Casillas' hand could've been severely damaged by Álvaro Arbeloa. The Spanish goalkeeper still has to go through some medical tests this Thursday evening (CET) to establish a more precise timetable for his potential return.

If the initial reports are confirmed, Real Madrid could be searching for an interesting deal to sign a better goalkeeper for the remainder of the season. Play the ties against Manchester United and FC Barcelona could be too much for Antonio Adán, so that seems like a legit move.
