Real Madrid's official kit for the 2015-16 season has been unveiled with Iker Casillas taking centre stage despite reports in Spain claiming a few days ago that the Spaniard had agreed to leave the Santiago Bernabeu to make space for David de Gea's arrival from Manchester United.
The 34-year-old goalkeeper has been under increasing scrutiny in recent years since Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho left him out of the starting line-up when he was in charge at Real Madrid.
The club legend managed to recoup his place between the sticks under Carlo Ancelotti during the last two campaigns but has fallen out of favour with a section of the supporters, being constantly whistled at in fury during the games, while he confronted them later in the season during a game against Valencia.
Casillas was already heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in the summer of 2014, while the uncertainty over his future increased this season amid reports claiming Real Madrid have identified De Gea as his replacement ahead of next term.
The Spaniard had claimed on a number of occasions that he is likely to hang up his boots at his childhood side but Spanish TV station TVE reported the 'keeper had made a U-turn and, after reaching an agreement with the club, will leave the Santiago Bernabeu to make way for the Manchester United number one.
The La Liga giants later denied the agreement and have now has muddied the waters after putting the captain at the centre of their new kit campaign.
Meanwhile, Spain boss Vicente del Bosque kept Casillas ahead of De Gea in his starting line up during their 1-0 victory over Belarus in a Euro 2016 qualifier on Sunday 14 June.
