Earlier in the week, several Spanish newspapers reported that showdown talks were held between Casillas, Sergio Ramos and president Florentino Perez with the players expressing their dissatisfaction with coach Jose Mourinho.
However, Perez held a press conference later in the day and personally dismissed the rumours and indicated that Mourinho retains the board's backing.
Even the two Spanish internationals released a statement denying the allegations but Marca, the leading daily in Madrid, continues to stand by their version of events.
Marca editor Óscar Campillo took the unusual step of publicly defending the organisation on Friday and said, "All we claim is that the players said: 'President, we're more united than ever, we're going all out for the Champions League and the Spanish Cup. However, some of the coach's actions have disconcerted us and if he stays next season, some players will consider their futures'. That's the information we have, and that's what we've reported."
Guti weighed in on the issue and declared that he finds it unthinkable that players from his former club would seek to take matters into their own hands and try to influence as important a decision as their coach's future.
"It's not possible a captain [Ramos or Casillas] would tell Florentino what he must do regarding a coach," the 36-year-old told Cadena Cope.
"The future of the boss should be decided by the club, and not the players.
"I have never said anything like that to any president, it would not be respectful. The president has been clever enough to come out and make a stand.
"It's normal to have some kind of problem with someone in a group of 25 players, but the group has to come first, above rivalries.
"If they can't put up with Mourinho, there will be time to sort it out later on, with the Champions League coming up in a few weeks time."
Even young defender Raphael Varane gave his backing to Mourinho and dismissed all talk of unrest within the dressing room.
"Mourinho is the best coach in the world and we are all behind him. The press has been very harsh on him," the Frenchman said at a press conference.
"We are all rowing in the same direction. We gave him a signed picture of last year's championship winning game for his 50th birthday.
"He has been doing a good job at Madrid and he deserves more credit for what he does."
Madrid face Getafe in their La Liga encounter on Sunday and face arch-rivals Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-finals.
