Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

REAL Madrid have reached agree­ment with Por­tuguese side FC Porto for the trans­fer of goal­keeper and cap­tain Iker Casil­las, the Span­ish club has an­nounced.

Casil­las leaves a club with which he grew up, join­ing Real’s youth academy aged nine in 1990 and win­ning 19 tro­phies in his 16 sea­sons.

“Real Madrid and FC Porto have agreed the trans­fer of Iker Casil­las to the Por­tuguese club,” Real Madrid said.

“One of the best goal­keep­ers in this club is not just leav­ing, to­day the great­est goal­keeper in the history of the club and in the history of Span­ish football is mov­ing on to a new stage in his foot­balling ca­reer.”
