Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has made a decision regarding his long term future, reports Le10sport. 

The report has suggested that the Spanish international, who has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in recent time, has become frustrated at the club, and will now opt to leave the the Spanish side at the end of the season.

On the move? 

In-fact, it's been suggested that Casillas could leave the Bernabeu in January after becoming the subject of criticism at the club. It appears that the veteran has become annoyed by the way he's been treated by management and fans at the La Liga giants in recent time.

Casillas has endured a tricky time in his career over the last few years after initially losing his place in the starting XI under Jose Mourinho during the 2012/13 campaign. And, last season, despite the emergence of Carlo Ancelotti as the club's manager, Casillas continued to struggle for a starting spot, and had to settle for opportunities in cup competitions. He did, however, play his part in helping Real secure the Champions League last season. 

However, the 33-year-old had a summer to forget as he was criticised following Spain's early exit from the World Cup, as they were knocked out in the group stages. This season, despite reinstating himself as the club's No.1 'keeper, he's failed to find his best form, with Madrid struggling to get their season going domestically. 

Arsenal move? 

And now it appears that he's finally set to end his spell in La Liga, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will opt for a move to Arsenal. The Gunners have been credited with interest in the Spaniard for some time now, with Arsene Wenger looking to add some experience to his goalkeeping department. 

Wojciech Szczesny - Arsenal's current No.1 - has proved inconsistent for the north London outfit over the past year or so, meaning Casillas could come in to help improve the Polish international. However, with Monaco also interested in the 'keeper, Arsenal may have a battle on their hands in order to land him in the winter market or next summer.
