Real Madrid confirm Diego López transfer

The goalkeeper was on his way out for almost one week, but the deal has now been officially announced.

As if we didn't know for weeks, Diego López is the one goalkeeper leaving Real Madrid. The Spanish goalie has signed his contract with AC Milan and Real Madrid just announced the deal via an official statement.

Real Madrid and AC Milan have reached an agreement over Diego López's transfer. The club want to show our gratitude for the dedication and professionalism displayed by López, and we'd like to wish him good luck for the future.

Diego López will likely be Milan's starting goalkeeper next season, and while the rossoneri will not play in Europe, Milan are one of Europe's biggest clubs. Diego López will be able to retire as a goalkeeper having played in Real Madrid and AC Milan, the two European clubs with the most Champions League trophies. He was a true professional who would've probably liked to stay, but Keylor Navas' signing and Iker Casillas' contract forced him out.
