Real Madrid legend Gento is convinced Sergio Ramos will remain at the club but suspects captain Iker Casillas will leave.

After ending last season trophyless, Madrid opted to dismiss coach Carlo Ancelotti and replace him with Rafa Benitez, while changes to the playing staff are expected over the summer.

Ramos is considering quitting as he is unhappy with the new contract he has been offered and Casillas is edging towards a move to Porto 25 years after joining Madrid as a schoolboy.

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has been lined up as a replacement, but though Gento envisages Casillas moving on, he believes Ramos is going nowhere.

“He’s not going to go,” the iconic winger is quoted as saying byAS at a charity event on Tuesday. “Sergio is going to stay.

“I do not know about Iker. I do not want him to leave. But I have my doubts.”

Meanwhile, Gento was asked during a question and answer session with the children in attendance whether he had played with current Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 81-year-old replied: “No, but I played with others as good as him. I played with Alfredo Di Stefano, who was the best, and Ferenc Puskas.”

Gento spent 18 years with Madrid, winning 12 Liga titles and six European Cups.
