Champions League Winner In Line To Make Switch To MLS

Iker Casillas could well become the next high-profile player to make the move to the MLS.

United States' top tier has been the place to be for some of the great players ever to play the game when they come to the final years of their careers - David Beckham, Kaka, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo to name just a few.

And reports would suggest that Casillas could be next in line, with a potential move to Chicago Fire on the cards, as per the Washington Post.

The former Spain captain, who won the World Cup and Euros with La Roja, would appear to be unhappy at Porto, where he has had to play second-fiddle to 24-year old Jose Sa. Casillas has made 10 appearances in all competitions, compared to Sa's 13.

He has been linked with moves to teams around Europe and in the Premier League, including Newcastle and Liverpool, but the 36-year old is now believed to be in talks with Chicago, as well as being open to the transfer.

Fire have four goalkeepers in their ranks at the moment, but would surely have no problem making room for the three-time Champions League winner.

They would likely have to get rid of one of their three designated players, though there has been talk that Bastian Schweinsteiger, who joined this time last year, will move on after his contract has expired.

Although, there are also reports indicating Chicago are pushing to sign the Real Madrid legend on a non-designated player deal - which would be quite special.

The MLS have just lost two of their most popular players in Pirlo and Kaka, but the potential acquisition of Casillas, one of the greatest goalkeepers in history, would certainly keep plenty of eyes on the league.
