Iker Casillas has revealed his affection for Newcastle United on Twitter.

The Real Madrid legend picked his favourite club from a number of countries, where next to an English flag lies the Magpies.

His reasons for supporting United are yet to be noted, leaving United fans on social media to speculate themselves.

Some have suggested the 37-year-old should finish his career on Tyneside while some refuse to believe he's better than current number one Martin Dubravka.
