Iker Casillas has been linked with a move to Manchester United by some newspapers, with Edwin Van der Sar set to retire at the end of the season and Ben Foster suffering from several injuries.

The 28-year-old has distanced himself from the rumours though, claiming Real Madrid are in his heart and there’s not a chance of him leaving for United or anyone else.

“There is absolutely nothing, neither from United nor another club,” Casillas said. “Neither my agent nor Madrid have informed me of any offer, and nobody has called me either. It’s speculation, which is what happens when the transfer market is open. I have a contract with Madrid until 2017 and what I’m thinking about is completing it. Everybody knows Madrid are in my heart and that I’m a White until I die. I joined Real Madrid as a child and Madrid is my home. The fans should be calm, there is nothing at all from Manchester or any other club. I’m from Spain and from Madrid, and that’s it.”
