Iker Casillas and Spanish producer and TV channel Movistar + have created a documentary series which will go over his whole career as a goalkeeper, both for Real Madrid and the Spanish national team.

Casillas attended an event with the press last night and talked about the possibility of making his return to Real Madrid, reported on the Spanish press months ago.

“One can’t hide the fact that after 25 years with Real Madrid I might return. It’s a special hope I have because I can be useful for a leading club, I know the club very well. We don’t know what the future holds but it’s definitely a special hope I have so that I can share the values I learned as a child, those will always be there. I will never shut the door to a place where I can be happy in the future,” said Casillas.

The former goalkeeper is expected to join the club as a consultant, according to the reports published about the matter a few months back. While Casillas didn’t leave the club on good terms when he was a player, it certainly looks like president Florentino Perez is willing to let him rejoin his lifelong club and maybe choose the next path for his career after his retirement as a player.
