According to Marca, the veteran shot-stopper is set to hang up his boots in order to step into the coaching game.

Casillas suffered a heart attack during a FC Porto training session last year and is yet to play a competitive match since the incident on 1 May 2019.

The Spanish publication now claims the 39-year-old will now work with club president Florentio Perez in an adviser role, which is expected to clarified in the coming weeks.

The role is reported to be similar to the position Zinedine Zidane had when Jose Mourinho was manager of Los Blancos.
