Besiktas make offer for Iker Casillas?

The goalkeeper wants to hear what Benítez has in mind first.

Turkish club Besiktas has made a "big offer for Iker Casillas", according to Marca. That offer would be tempting both for Real Madrid and the goalkeeper, but Casillas wants to know Benítez's plans for the goalkeeper spot before making a decision about his future.

Real Madrid want to sign David De Gea this summer and that would obviously make him the starting goalkeeper, so Iker Casillas must make up his mind and either fight for the spot or leave the club and keep playing to have a chance of being Spain's goalkeeper in the 2016 UEFA Eurocup.

Other reports from Spain, mainly from La Sexta's Josep Pedrerol, indicate that Casillas doesn't have "a single offer" to leave Real Madrid, meaning that Los Blancos would need to pay him if he wants to sign for another club as a free agent. Florentino Pérez doesn't want to spend close to €20 million to see Casillas gone, so this will be a long summer.
