Casillas rejects talk of a move.
Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has rejected talk of a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu and reiterated his commitment to the Spanish giants, Sky Sports reports.
The 31-year-old custodian has lost his place in the Madrid starting line up recently and speculation over a summer move surrounding him have been rife, but he has been compelled to dispel those rumours be reaffirming his desire to stay in the Spanish capital.
Casillas found himself out of the side when he suffered a hand injury in January. Former Villarreal ‘keeper Diego Lopez stepped in in his absence and now that the World Cup winner has returned to full fitness he has been unable to dislodge his colleague after Lopez has impressed with a string of fine performances.
However, Casillas is determined to get his place back and stay with Los Blancos: “My future is at Real Madrid because I have a contract with them and because I’ve been there since I was nine, it’s my life-long club and where I would like to be.”
He could now, though, offer any indications over where Jose Mourinho would be next season.
“You’ll have to ask him about that. I’ve come to collect an individual prize and what interests me is to make the Madrid fans happy, and as that can’t be in the Champions League this season, then it needs to be in what’s left, which is the Copa del Rey.”
Casillas was receiving an award from the City of Madrid shortly after his side were knocked out of the semi final of the Champions League to Borussia Dortmund.
