Real Madrid complete Diego Lopez signing

The Liga champions have swooped for the 31-year-old to provide extra goalkeeping cover, after Iker Casillas was ruled out for up to 12 weeks following surgery on his hand

Real Madrid have completed the signing of goalkeeper Diego Lopez from Sevilla.

The story is too old to be commented.

Casillas' injury seems worse than originally thought which is devastating. That'll put him out of both Copa games against Barca and both Champions League games against Manchester United.

The real shame here is Adan hasn't been given the opportunity to shine. This is the problem with Mourinho; Jese hasn't been given a chance, nor Morata (enough of a chance) or Nacho and yes he played Adan a few times but that was to give Casillas competition. Guardiola at Barca couldn't wait to test the youth at any point, even in Champions League games. This move makes me wonder why he hasn't given Adan the number 1 spot for at least the next 3 months. If anything Real need a decent number 2 and Jesus isn't decent yet so Lopez or Adan will play that roll, time will tell who will and will either of them be happy?

Fine and sensible signing. Lopez is terrific and Casillas/Mourinho relationship is turning sour so this is a good addition
