Casillas is frustrated with the situation at Real Madrid after Diego Lopez bypassed him to become the club’s first choice goalkeeper in La Liga. This resulted in the club captain making only two league appearances this season.

But the 33-year-old is still the club’s number one when it comes to cup competitions, meaning that he got to feature in their Champions LEague final appearance. However, he is still said to be unhappy as he feels he is not getting the necessary amount of game time he feels he deserves.

Having been at his boyhood club since he was 10, he is now finally said to be willing to kiss Real goodbye as reports in Spain have him moving on during the January transfer window.

His international colleague, Santi Cazorla, earlier this year urged the custodian to join him at Arsenal and believes a lot of clubs will come calling if he decides to part ways with Real Madrid.

“His situation is very complicated, but he has to make a decision”, the Gunners midfielder said.

“Lots of clubs want him, including Arsenal, but I think that it would be very difficult to leave Real Madrid because of what the club represents.

“He knows what he has [at Real Madrid] and what he could find at another club.”
