Pepe Reina seen telling Iker Casillas to leave Real Madrid?

What is it with Spanish keepers and transfer rumors.

The future of Barcelona shot-stopper Victor Valdes has been questioned for years now, with Liverpool’s on-loan no.1 Pepe Reina reported to be heading the other way into the Camp Nou.

Recent events have seen Iker Casillas seemingly edging closer to a move from Real Madrid soon enough, with coach Carlo Ancelotti continuing Jose Mourinho’s work of putting Diego Lopez between the sticks on match days.

This latest video could be further indication of Casillas’ unhappiness at the Bernabeu, too.

Warming up before Spain’s 2-1 victory over Belarus on Friday, back-up keepers Casillas and Reina were seen chatting, unbeknownst to them that the cameras were to pick up exactly what they were saying.

Indeed, unfortunately for them, Spanish TV channel Cuatro was amongst the media at the friendly and they’ve managed to secure a now translated lip-read conversation between the two, which went something like this:

Reina: How many could it be? 10? 12? (Games you’ll play this season)

Iker: Yeah, but in the end…. -

Reina: In the end, it’s a [expletive] season… Because in the end you’re going to play, at best, 10 or 12 Cup games.

Iker: ‘But to leave now…I can’t see that happening man… at least I’ll play the Cup.

Reina: The Cup! That’s embarrassing, shameful.

Credit to Casillas for wanting to remain loyal to Los Blancos, but would a transfer breathe fresh life into the career of one of the world’s best keepers?
