Iker Casillas pens one-year extension with Porto

Casillas signs one-year contract extension with the Portuguese champions Porto

Former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has penned a one-year contract extension with Porto.

Casillas, who made 20 league starts as Porto dethroned Benfica to win the Primeira Liga by seven points, was linked with a move away from Portugal this summer

The 36-year-old has reportedly accepted a wage cut to stay at the club as his previous deal was due to expire this summer.

After signing his new contract, the Spanish shot-stopper said: “I am extremely happy to be here for one more year.

“It’s amazing to be linked to a fantastic club and city, both of which welcomed me from day one.

“There were rumours that I would, but I always intended to stay.

“Fortunately, I was able to do so, and I am happy for it.

“When I got to FC Porto, three years, the intention was to win the maximum number of titles possible titles.

“My arrival coincided with a less fortunate period for the club, now that we got this important title, we need to enjoy it.”
