Real Madrid shot stopper Iker Casillas has revealed that he could have to leave the club at some point if the situation surrounding his position doesn’t change.
He stated that it might happen even during the January transfer window or during the summer transfer window but he has admitted that he has to come to a decision after falling out of favor at the club.
The Spanish international skipper has played only a handful of times for the club this term, mainly in the UEFA Champions League after he lost his place to Diego Lopez who was signed as a backup option for him when he sustained a broken arm last season under former manager Jose Mourinho.
Speaking to a media outlet, the outspoken Spanish national team skipper stated that if the situation remains as it is right now and doesn’t change in the next three months, there is nothing to do except look to leave. Iker Casillas is hailed as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time and many have criticized the club’s handling of a player who has spent his career at Real Madrid as disrespecting all that he has done for the club.
He stated that he has been at the club since he was a child but he knows there might come a day when the decision to leave has to be made but he mentioned that if that day ever comes, he will do it with a very heavy heart because the love for the club flows in his veins.
Iker Casillas also revealed that he wanted to tell the club to let him go in September but now he thinks it is time to leave and his desire to leave the club has put the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal on alert.
