Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez is close to completing a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu with firm interest from both AC Milan and Monaco.
The 32 year-old kept Iker Casillas out of the starting-eleven in La Liga last season but the signing of Keylor Navas could end the Spaniard’s involvement at the club.
According to Sky Sport Italia the Italian side AC Milan are favourites for the player’s signature while Monaco continue to monitor the situation in the background.
Milan want to take Lopez on loan for the season but the former Villarreal shot-stopper is keen on securing a permanent switch away from Real Madrid this summer.
The Rossoneri are looking to find a solution with coach Carlo Ancelotti happy to lend his former side a hand in convincing Lopez to make the switch to Serie A.
However should negotiations collapse then Monaco could be in the goalkeeper as they have the capacity to top anything Milan could be offering in terms of wages.
A resolution could be found by the end of the day with Milan displaying a great degree of optimism over the proposed move.
