Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is confident Iker Casillas won't seek a move away.

He insisted that goalkeeper Casillas has told him he wants to stay, despite the competition from Diego Lopez.

"Casillas did not want to leave. He wants to be useful to the club," he said.

"Casillas has been with us since he was nine-years-old and Madrid is home, he is our captain and that of the team and has enjoyed a lot, but sometimes things go wrong. When that happens, we must continue working.

"The situation of Casillas and Diego Lopez is very complicated. They are both great goalkeepers and the fans are with them.

"He has a contract and we trust him to stay in Madrid until the end of his sporting life."
