Real Madrid and Spain legend Iker Casillas has instructed his agent to pave a way for him from the Liga NOS to the Premier League. The Spanish goalkeeper - who is currently at Portuguese club Porto - has been out of touch with the starting goalkeeping role. 

Casillas hasn't featured for the Portuguese side since October, and has now signalled his intentions to revive his twilight career in the Premier League. 

According to the Mirror, speculation have stated that the Spanish keeper's agents have been in contact with a couple of Premier League clubs, though it is West Brom that lead the chase.

Porto won't stand in the way of the 36-year-old, as they are animatedly trying to rid themselves of the keeper's enormous wage bill to keep in accordance with Financial Fair Play. 

Trying to avoid a hefty penalty, the Portuguese club will even entertain Casillas leaving on a free in January in the haste of clearing his wage off their books.

As Casillas plots a move towards the Premier League, he has told Porto that he will even go without wages until the end of the Portuguese campaign, thus making his transfer to a potential English club as seamless as possible. 

Casillas, who has shrouded himself with a host of honours for both Real Madrid and Spain in his illustrious career, will be disappointed that his chapter in Portugal did not go according to plan. 

But he has told his agents about his preference of the Premier League as his next chapter, wanting to test himself within the league's physicality.
