Carlo Ancelotti has poured cold water on speculation linking long-serving goalkeeper Iker Casillas with a move away from Real Madrid this summer.

The 33-year-old is contracted to the club until the end of the 2016-17 season and has only missed four league games this campaign.

However, he was used sparingly last term and Real have two other good shot-stoppers, Keylor Navas and Fernando Pacheco, in their ranks.

Former AC Milan and Chelsea boss Ancelotti, who has been in charge at Real since June 2013, said: “Next season I see myself here with Casillas and all of the players who are doing well with Real Madrid.

“I am lucky to have three great goalkeepers, who are professional and serious. I have the three best goalkeepers in the world and we have never talked about signing a goalkeeper next season.”

Real, two points behind leaders Barcelona with seven games remaining, entertain seventh-placed Malaga on Saturday.

Real are 8.00 to beat Malaga 2-0 and 4.50 to win the Champions League outright. They face Atletico in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final next week after the first leg ended goalless.

Don’t forget, if the match finishes 0-0, bet365 will refund all pre-match Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and Scorecast bets with our fantastic Bore Draw Money Back offer.
