AC Milan are keeping tabs on Diego Lopez's situation at Real Madrid.

The goalkeeper faces demotion at the end of the season with Jose Mourinho to leave Real. Lopez is expected to make way for club captain Iker Casillas.

Corriere dello Sport says Milan see the Spaniard as a potential successor for Christian Abbiati.

Lopez has built his reputation in recent months after being backed by Mourinho ahead of Casillas.
