Goalkeeper Iker Casillas is officially heading out of Real Madrid after spending 16 seasons in the net for them.
The 34-year-old will transfer to Portuguese club Porto, and he became emotional in a press conference that was held in front of cheering Real Madrid fans.
Casillas played a vital role in Real Madrid’s recent success, as they took home five La Liga championships.
They also won three UEFA Champions League titles, including their most recent one in 2014.
Casillas also starred for the Spain national team, as he helped lead them to a 2010 FIFA World Cup title and two European Cup titles.
Their triumph in 2008 marked their first in 44 years, and they won another one in 2012.
Due to Casillas’ departure from Bernabeu, Real Madrid are now looking even more likely to land Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.
De Gea has expressed interest in transferring to Real Madrid, due to his Spanish roots and having one year remaining on his Man United contract.
