Tottenham and Manchester City's hopes of bringing Real Madrid's Diego Lopez to the Premier League have collapsed after the goalkeeper's agent expressed his belief that he will continue at the Bernabeu next season.
Lopez, who recently expressed his intention to stay at Real, moved to Madrid in January 2013 after the Spanish giants paid £3m to Sevilla to secure his services.
Both Premier League clubs, besides Serie A giants Napoli and AC Milan, are believed to be tracking the keeper, who was expected to be Iker Casillas' understudy but eventually usurped the Madrid legend following his arrival.
The 32-year-old, who came through Real's academy, was whistled by his own team's fans during Saturday's 5-0 win over Rayo Vallecano as they would prefer to see Casillas reinstated to his first-choice role in the league at Lopez's expense.
The fans' hostility has led to speculation that the Galician is fed up with constant focus on his individual duel with Casillas.
However, according to Calciomercato, Lopez's agent Manuel Garcia Quilon has denied rumours of a summer departure, saying that the keeper is strong enough to overcome the pressure and has no intention of leaving.
"[Lopez] has a very strong personality, and is focused on his work," Quilon said.
"I have not received any calls. As things are today, I believe that Diego Lopez will stay at Real Madrid next season."
So far it has been speculated that Real's two keepers are not happy at all with their constant rotation, and in the summer one of them could leave the club. However Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Arbeloa have both supported Lopez, who continues fighting in every single game to maintain the trust of manager Carlo Ancelotti.
