Spanish goalkeeper Kiko Casilla has revealed his delight after returning to Real Madrid eight years after leaving the Spanish outfit.
The 28-year-old joined Los Blancos at the age of 14, but failed to make a first-team appearance for the club before moving on to Espanyol in 2007.
Casilla completed a return to the Bernabeu earlier this week and has set his sights on becoming the club's first-choice goalkeeper ahead of Keylor Navas.
"I joined the club when I was 14 and I never imagined that I'd return to Real Madrid after leaving. Life throws gifts your way now and again and you have to make the most of them," he told Real Madrid's official website.
"This was the gift I needed. The teenage years have a latest effect on a person and I spent mine here. I developed part of my personality and character here and I'm delighted to be back.
"My objectives are to be the first-choice keeper, help the manager as much as I can on the pitch, form a strong bond with my teammates and try to play as often as I can."
David de Gea could yet arrive at Real Madrid from Manchester United this summer.
