Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has added his voice to the growing list of people calling for Iker Casillas to stay at Real Madrid, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola.

Casillas has been linked with a number of high-profile moves, with the likes of Manchester City, United, Arsenal and even Barcelona said to be interested in taking him away from the Bernabeu.

The Madrid skipper has found life difficult in the Spanish capital since losing his first-team spot to Diego Lopez, and rumours have been rife with differing speculation concerning his future.

Yesterday the 'keeper, who made his debut for the Los Blancos first team back in 1999, stated that he would love to remain at the club 'forever', but this is in stark contrast to other quotes that have him down as saying that he would seek an exit if his game-time didn't improve.

Ancelotti has thus far remained quite quiet on the future of the 32-year-old but has now revealed that he wants Casillas to stay at the club.

"[I] did not talk to him about his possible departure. He is a great goalkeeper and very professional," the Madrid boss said.

"[He] Help the team who does not play the same. He's a captain. I hope he is [staying] because it is very important for the environment within the group."
