Real Madrid are set to sign goalkeeper Kiko Casilla after he underwent a medical with the club.

Casilla, who has one cap for Spain, started his career at the Santiago Bernabeu, but never played for the first-team.

The Espanyol player been one of the stand-out goalkeepers in La Liga in recent years and his arrival is likely to end the club's interest in David De Gea this summer.

Espanyol president Joan Collet has said his club have rejected a bid from Real Madrid for goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

Madrid are seeking a replacement for club captain Iker Casillas, who is expected to join to Porto, and although Manchester United's David de Gea remains their number one target, it appears Casilla is also on their radar.

On Saturday, Espanyol announced on Twitter: "Collet has met the media. He explained that the club has rejected the only bid of K. Casilla by R. Madrid."

The Brazil international has made 320 appearances for Real in his nine years at the club.

Real Madrid have offered Keylor Navas to Man United as part of their ongoing negotiations for David de Gea.

That's the latest rumour to come out of Spain today, where Marca claim Louis van Gaal may be tempted by the prospect of landing the goalkeeper who impressed at last summer's World Cup.

In fact, it was the Costa Rican's standout performance against Van Gaal's Dutch side, where he pulled off numerous key saves leading up to the penalty shoot-out, that made him such hot property in Europe.

United, meanwhile, remain determined to land Madrid's experienced centre-back, Sergio Ramos, and are expected to block De Gea's transfer unless Madrid allow him to leave.

"The only thing I've said in the past is that Rome is a great city and Roma is a big club with a great fan following."
