Real Madrid’s home-grown Galactico, Iker Casillas, is looking forward to the new season with anticipation - and rightly so, now that Los Blancos have been strengthened by signing the two most recent Ballon d’Or winners, Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Many of the club’s rivals believe that the side could struggle due to the high expectations and the massive squad changes, but Casillas is optimistic that quality will prevail in the end.

“I hope that they [Kaka and Ronaldo] can contribute at the level that they’ve been showing and that they will arrive with a lot of desire to play and win titles for Real Madrid,” he told reporters upon touching down at Barajas Airport after returning from the Confederations Cup in South Africa.

“With players like Kaka, Ronaldo, [Raul] Albiol and the rest of the current squad, we have to do everything possible to end Barcelona’s dominance.”

Casillas was then asked if Valencia striker David Villa would be the next galactic signing for Florentino Perez.

“I do not know what will happen,” he replied. “I hope that everything will turn out well in the end for him and his family.”
