PSG Goalkeeper Mickael Landreau: I Could Leave France For Spain Or England

Rumours are rife in France that Paris Saint-Germain’s in-form goalkeeper could be set to move to Real Madrid in order to become Iker Casillas’ understudy...

Anyone who witnessed Mickael Landreau’s performance during Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-1 UEFA Cup success over Wolfsburg on Thursday evening could not help but be impressed by his display.

Les Parisiens’ goalkeeper has been getting back to his best after last season’s difficult campaign and the French press are even tipping him for a move to Real Madrid, where he would be Iker Casillas’ back-up.

Mercato365 reports that Landreau has stated that a Primera Division 'heavyweight' are interested in his services, while an interview with France Football magazine reveals that the former international goalkeeper is looking to continue his career outside of France.

“I could stay but I have proposals from France, England and Spain,” stated Landreau, whose contract with les Parisiens is due to expire in June 2010.

Meanwhile, the former Nantes goalkeeper has all but accepted that his career at international level – at which he appeared 11 times for Les Bleus – is over. “I’m out,” he sighs. “It’s easy to say this now, but I had an incredible experience.”

As an international goalkeeper, Landreau’s time may have passed prematurely considering he is only 29-years-old, but he still has a great deal to offer at club level. Since winning the French championship with les Jeunes in 2001, Landreau has been starved of success and a move to a strongly domestic outfit would be appealing – let alone one with the designer name-tag of Real Madrid.
