Casillas to leave Madrid?
Wow, look for Real down the bottom half of the table if this happens. Far and away their most important player in the past four seasons, I can't think who they'd get to replace him. Gigi Buffon perhaps?
In other Real related news, Raul, who limped off in el derbi will be out for at least 2 months with a knee injury. With both Ronaldo and Baptista still struggling for fitness, it leaves Robinho as the only fully fit forward to face Lyon. It's at times like these they could really do with Michael Owen. And some defenders. And a midfield anchorman.
As I type this I see Sid Lowes article about Saturdays game has just gone up on The Guardian site. Have a read.
