Veteran Stopper Open To Real Return

Veteran Stopper Open To Real Return

Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas admits he would be open to returning to Real Madrid if he was offered the chance. The 37-year-old made his debut for Real Madrid in 1999 and he made a tearful departure after appearing over 700 times in 2015.


On the other hand,  Madrid have handed Santiago Solari a three-year contract to remain Real Madrid manager through the 2020-21 season after his impressive start in charge of the team.

Solari started life at Santiago Bernabeu with four wins from four matches, and will now continue on a long-term basis through the 2020-21 season.




Although Casillas has proven to be a key figure since joining Porto, making over 100 appearances, but he has failed to turn out for Spain since 2016.

He stands by his decision to move to Portugal but insists he would be open to returning to the Santiago Bernabeu, while confirming he is still available for Spain if required. “I think I did the right thing,” Casillas told Movistar+. “I think had I continued at Real Madrid, my time there would’ve ended worse than it did.” He added: “If Spain call me up, would I go back? I’d be delighted to. If Madrid called me? Of course, I can’t forget where I grew up.”
