“Real Madrid and FC Porto have agreed the transfer of Iker Casillas to the Portuguese club,” Real Madrid said in a statement on Saturday after three days of intense negotiations.

Casillas joined Real’s youth academy at nine in 1990 and winning 19 trophies during his 16 seasons as a professional after playing 725 matches.

Real said the 34-year-old is not just leaving the club, “the greatest goalkeeper in the history of the club and in the history of Spanish football is moving on to a new stage in his footballing career.”

Real is reportedly trying to sign Manchester United’s 24-year-old Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea in a bid to rejuvenate.

The club finished second in La Liga last season behind Barcelona, who also won the Champions League title. Enditem
