Espanyol keeper Kiko Casilla is stalling on a new contract as he wishes it to include a 10m buyout clause. The 27-year-old keeper began his career with Real Madrid before moving to Espanyol in 2007 and he has since become a key part of the Barcelona based club’s plans.googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(“div-gpt-ad-1389116196215-0”); });Consistency and impressive performances have led to interest from the likes of Man United, Arsenal and Liverpool, whilst Barcelona and former club Real Madrid have maintained interest. However, he and Espanyol are keen to remain together but a stumbling block in negotiations to extend his current deal at the club are edging him closer to an exit. Casilla is keen to include a 10m release clause in his extended deal but the club see that as a ‘come and get me’ plea to the mentioned interested clubs. Espanyol would rather include a release clause of 20m and [FDN] understands that neither party is willing to meet in the middle.
