When Jose Mourinho departed Real Madrid during the last summer and the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti was announced it created expectations that Iker Casillas would undoubtedly be placed into the main squad of the team just as he has been doing for the majority of his playing career with the Spanish club.
Unfortunately for the captain of Spain, he has not played a single match, a single minute of this season of La Liga as Carlo Ancelotti has preferred placing Diego Lopez ahead of the World Cup champion.
Iker Casillas has already said that this campaign would be his last one in Real Madrid as the frustration of only being able to play in the Copa del Rey has reached him but the question that remains is where will he be playing in the next season.
Just about any club in the world would be willing to secure the services of the Spanish goalkeeper who still is regarded to be one of the best shot-stoppers in the world. Real Madrid has to face Barcelona in the Copa del Rey finale and it is very likely that it will be the last match that Iker Casillas gets the chance to appear facing off against their eternal rivals Barcelona.
While Iker Casillas will be seeing his way out of the club in the summer, Real Madrid is believed to be interested in signing the Chilean midfielder of Juventus, Arturo Vidal and are prepared to launch an offer to the Italian club when the transfer window re-opens in the summer but they have stiff competition as Manchester United are also keeping close tabs on Vidal.
