SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: DIEGO LOPEZ TO GO TO AC MILAN

DIEGO LOPEZ TO GO TO AC MILAN

Spanish Football Club Real Madrid - while the bad tongues say Captain Iker Casillas - have got their way & pushed aside goalkeeper Diego Lopez to another Club. The pressure by "both" has been fierce & embarrassing the last few days that Diego Lopez has come to an agreement to sign with Italian Club AC Milan.

The deal between Clubs & Diego Lopez is not official as yet, but AC Milan Chief Galliani said it was 99% done.  Spanish Sports paper "Marca" go further this afternoon & publish that it is a done deal. It is expected that Diego Lopez will fly off to Milan on Monday & sign his new contract with Milan for the next 4 years at around 2.5M€/season. 

The exit finishes the intense debate that has split the Real Madrid fan-base between Lopez & Iker Casillas on who should be the regular goalie. The Club wanted to start the new season without another season of controversy & decided to rid one of them, Diego Lopez being the unfortunate chosen player. The decision to rid Lopez is more a political than a Sporting decision as Iker Casillas is a historical Club figure with important fan-base support. However, the credit of Iker Casillas is running out as his on field form is not up to standards & there is "tension" within the Real Madrid dressing room with some other players that believe the behaviour & methods employed by Iker Casillas have not been at all ethical.

Diego Lopez may soon be gone, but Iker Casillas will have newly signed goalie Keylor Navas breathing down his back. If Casillas cannot regain his form soon or if he continues with his goalkeeping mistakes the debate will again be reopened with Navas replacing him or everyone reminding why Diego Lopez was transferred in the first place.
