Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez looks set to stay at Real Madrid, according to his agent.  

As reported by talkSPORT, the player's agent Manuel Garcia Quilon has insisted that the shot-stopper will stay at the Bernabeu next season. 

A number of clubs have been linked with the 32-year-old in recent time, with the likes of Italian giants AC Milan and Napoli having been credited with interest in the player.

Recent reports have also indicated that Premier League duo Manchester City and Tottenham want to bring the Spaniard to the Premier League. 

Both Manchester City and Spurs have had troubles with their 'keepers this season. City No.1 Joe Hart struggled in the early stages of the campaign and was consequently dropped by Manuel Pellegrini and Hugo Lloris has also had a difficult season at White Hart Lane. 

However, it now appears that the Premier League duo will have to look elsewhere this season, as Lopez's agent told El Mundo Deportivo: "I have not received any calls, neither from Milan nor from Naples.

"As it currently stands, I think Diego Lopez will stay at Real Madrid next season. He has a very strong personality, is calm, and is focused on his job."

Both Manchester City and Tottenham will have to put potential transfer business on hold and concentrate on the Premier League run in. 

The Citizens are in action this weekend, as they take on Southampton, meanwhile Spurs host Premier League strugglers Sunderland on Monday night.
