Diego Lopez has no intention of leaving Real Madrid.

The goalkeeper, says El Confidencial, is aware of rumours linking Real with Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois, but is determined not to be forced out.

Lopez remains Real coach Carlo Ancelotti's first-choice for the La Liga, despite Iker Casillas' impressive Cup and Champions League form.

While Lopez isn't satisfied with the situation, he has no plans to leave, with his contract running to 2017.

Casillas, meanwhile, has publicly declared he also wants to see out his contract - which like Lopez runs to 2017. However, the club captain is yet to make his intentions clear in private to Real directors.
