Madrid said on its club website on Saturday that Lopez's contract will keep him at the Spanish champions until the end of the 2016-17 season.

The 31-year-old Lopez came up through Madrid's youth system, playing sparingly for its first team before playing for Villarreal from 2007-2012. He had joined Sevilla last offseason.

Madrid also said that Casillas was released from hospital Saturday morning after undergoing surgery on his left hand which he broke during a match on Wednesday. He is expected to be sidelined for two to three months.
