Man Utd add Iker Casillas to their squad list!

Another Premier League internet blunder

Hot on the heels of Liverpool selling shirts featuring the name of a player they haven’t signed, Manchester United have ensured their were not outdone by their bitter rivals by adding a player profile for Iker Casillas on their official website.

Whether this is the work of a rogue webmaster, a genuine sign of things to come, or an attempt to play Real Madrid at their own dirty tricks campaign remains to be seen. The Daily Mail reported yesterday that United were interested in a move for the Spanish keeper. And we’ve got more evidence that could push Casillas out of Real after the jump.

Having witnessed the failed first galacticos experiment first-hand, Casillas might be reluctant to go through it again. Indeed, his football pitch complex in the Madrid satellite town of Móstoles has a huge sign looming over the adjacent motorway which reads “No soy galáctico, soy de Móstoles” or “I’m not a galactico, I’m from Móstoles”.

So there you have it: he definitely wants to leave!

    I remember seeing Tim Cahill on Portsmouth’s squad list last year, I just missed it before I could screenshot it, though.

  • Alex D

    I really hope they dont spend the money on Casillas. Edwin is fit enough to lead them on for a while, and signing another top class keeper, when that’s not what they need, is the wrong idea. Spend the money else where please, sign the frenchmen

  • Jesper

    Seriously…
    Casillas is not coming,

    Fernando Hierro?

    You just change the number in the end, then you can find all the players you want by, but that doesnt mean United are going to buy them…

    Lololol wtf is that? They have teh whole Real Madrid squad on their site. I keep changing the last digit and so far I’ve come across Zidane, Figo, Morientes, Raul, Casillas, Guti, Postiga, and a random assortment of Spanish and Russian names. Infact, there are over a thousand number combinations and every one of them is yielding a new player. This is a bug and a half!

    And now a random assormtment of English names, but I spotted Tim Cahill, and there was a number ’17’ next to his name!

  • niall

    Ye, and if you keep on going through all of the 4000 numbers, all sorts of players come up, from roberto carlos to zinadine zidane and buffon the mcmanam!!! weird

  • iker Casillas_real madrid

    Hello to all the dreamers who create boxes that will go to Real Madrid.
    To begin to say that putting on the sign, it means that it is a small town and it’s no laugh, no you do not want to be in Madrid of the Galactica, right? This poster takes 5 years there and since nobody has ever complained, So do not want to sell now smoke.
    Casillas unlike CR7 if Real Madrid, and always has been and will be, CR7 is Portuguese and not manchester.
    So I say, continue to dream because it does not sell Casillas, Real Madrid is a club buyer and seller is not the best goalkeeper in the world.

  • ed

    yeah i just entered a random number, 3851, and got Totti

  • Crap thread

    wtf?!!

    This billboard – which WAS only put up recently and is the little-known veteran keeper’s advertising debut – has caused serious ructions at the Bernabeu, with Casillas’ contract at the club being terminated and Reebok facing lawsuits from Adidas and CR9’s people.
