REAL MADRID | IKER CASILLAS LEAVES FOR PORTO

News just coming in  announce that Real Madrid Goalkeeper & Captain Iker Casillas is on his way to Portuguese Club Porto after the player & his current club shut the deal. A bitter end after 25 years of service with 16 in the A-squad. The negotiation battle was hard with economic issues at the forefront & with end to end accusations from both sides that blemished the end of the career from Iker at Real Madrid.

New Porto player

So bad have things apparently ended, that Iker Casillas has refused a "special goodbye event" organized by the Club & will say goodbye to the "fans" in a press conference tomorrow that he will organize. Already expectations are high on what will be his final words, & if he will leave throwing darts.

Iker Casillas leaves for Porto - free of transfer - after his remaining 2 years of contract was resolved. Porto offers a 2 year contract with another optional & will pay 5M€ in salary & Real Madrid the remaining amount as in his contract with the Spanish Club. Just to remind you Casillas was earning around 12M€ + or - gross at Real Madrid. 

Casillas leaves bitter after he was shown the exit door & from the harsh criticisms received from fans in recent years. We wish him luck with his new adventure.

Real Madrid has already quickly moved & is close to signing RCD Espanyol Goalkeeper Kiko Casilla, transfer price around 6M€. Another target David De Gea is still in negotiation.

Stay tuned!
