'Ronaldo and Casillas will leave Real Madrid'

Former Blancos goalkeeper Agustin Rodriguez is in no doubt that the future of the duo lies away from the Santiago Bernabeu

Cristiano Ronaldo and Iker Casillas are “certain” to leave Real Madrid, according to the club’s former goalkeeper Agustin Rodriguez.

Casillas’ future has been the subject of speculation following his patchy form over the past 12 months and persistent rumours linking Madrid with Manchester United’s David de Gea.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, has often cut a frustrated figure in recent weeks and has upheld a blackout with mainstream media in recent weeks.

Agustin is adamant that Madrid fans can expect both players to leave the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, despite the club suggesting contrary.

“I think Iker Casillas is going to go, genuinely. And Cristiano, too. I’m certain on that,” the 55-year-old, who spent 10 years at Madrid, told Radio Marca.

“We’ll see in the news that comes out next Wednesday.”

The European champions take on Juventus in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday, having lost the first leg 2-1 in Turin.
