Iker Casillas has admitted he will leave Real Madrid in January if not given more playing time, leaving himself open to a Premier League switch. 

The goalkeeper, who has played only one full game this season, never recovered his starting position from Diego Lopez after breaking his left hand last season.

‘If the situation doesn’t change within three months and you ask me the same question, I’d probably say that I’ll be looking to leave,’ Casillas said.

Madrid coach Jose Mourinho favored Lopez even after Casillas’ return from injury, and new coach Carlo Ancelotti has also stuck with the former Spain international bought from Sevilla in January.

Casillas has played just 105 minutes this season, all in the Champions League.

‘In September I wanted to leave and I was going to tell the president that I wanted to go, but I decided to be a part of this squad and this club for a lot longer,’ Casillas said.

‘I always wanted to stay at Real Madrid but I’d like to play and compete more.’

The 32-year-old Spain international has been a regular at Madrid since 1999, guiding the club to two Champions League and five Spanish league titles.

He captained Spain to a 2010 World Cup triumph between back-to-back European Championships.
