Diego Lopez insists he is happy with life at Real Madrid and believes the club are making good progress under new boss Carlo Ancelotti. 

The 31-year-old arrived at the Bernabeu in January as a replacement for the injured Iker Casillas, and continued to hold down a first-team spot throughout the season. 

Speaking to the media in a press conference, Lopez maintained that he hasn't thought about leaving the club, despite the possibility that he may find himself behind Casillas in the pecking order under his new manager. 

"I have never thought about leaving," said Lopez. 

"I have confidence in my ability and about maintaining my level and improving. 

"If there have been offers then it is up to Real Madrid to evaluate them, but my position has always been to stay," he added. 

Madrid began their pre-season campaign with an impressive 6-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday, but Lopez remains focused ahead of their tie with French side Lyon. 

"We have a lot of difficult pre season matches and the one against Lyon is one of those. 

"We have to work hard to get the best possible start in the league," explained Lopez. 

After leaving Madrid for Villareal back in 2007, Lopez enjoyed five successful years with the Yellow Submarine before joining Sevilla in May 2012.
