Iker Casillas: I want to play at Porto until I’m 40

Veteran goalkeeper Iker Casillas wants to keep playing for FC Porto until he is 40 and has confirmed he would like to retire at the Portuguese club.

Now aged 37, the former Real Madrid stopper has re-established himself as number one at the Portuguese giants this season, starting 34 games to date.

He recently penned a new one-year deal which will take the Spaniard’s into a fifth season in northern Portugal and has been first-choice for all that time barring a period last season, when Jose Sa – now on loan at Olympiakos – was preferred.

“Since I've arrived in Portugal, (FC Porto president) Pinto da Costa has treated me so well,” Casillas told Movistar+, in quotes carried by ESPN FC.

“This week I'm going to renew my contract with Porto that will see me remain at the club until I'm 40. I'm 37 now so I will probably end my career at FC Porto.”
