Espanyol boss Sergio has admitted that he expects to lose goalkeeper Kiko Casilla to Real Madrid this summer.
Los Blancos are said to be keen on bringing their former stopper back to the Bernabeu in this transfer window following the departure of Iker Casillas.
"For Kiko, going to Real Madrid is a unique opportunity, you can't say no. You take it with your eyes closed, you are going to one of the elite clubs," Sergio told reporters.
Casilla, 28, started his professional career with Real Madrid, but never played for the first team.
