Casillas has spent his whole career at Real Madrid but limited opportunities could force him to consider his future and leave his beloved Madrid.

At 32, Casillas should be coming into his prime as a goalkeeper but instead finds himself being used as backup for Diego Lopez.

Jose Mourinho took the brave step of sidelining the Madrid icon, which caused a great deal of controversy at the time, and new boss Carlo Ancelotti has continued to use Lopez in the league.

The Madrid man had been Spain's number one but his position could come under threat as Barca's Victor Valdes continues to play in every game for the Catalonians.

It's amazing what a looming Worlc Cup will do to a players mindset.
