The agreement between Casillas and Real Madrid appeared to fall apart yesterday night, but the goalkeeper and the club have finally reached an agreement which will allow him to join FC Porto this summer. Casillas, however, doesn't want to have a proper farewell tomorrow, meaning that he will speak in press conference by himself.

Furthermore, it seems that FC Porto could be Real Madrid's rival in this year's Trofeo Bernabéu, so that game could be Casillas' testimonial after 25 years in the club's ranks.

The deal is expected to be confirmed today, but things can change quickly once again. Once Casillas' departure is complete, Real Madrid will go after Manchester United's goalkeeper David De Gea, although their manager Louis Van Gaal does not want to sell the Spaniard this summer, according to reports from Britain.

Stay tuned to this site for more breaking news about Casillas, David De Gea and Keylor Navas, as things will develop fast.
