REAL MADRID legend Iker Casillas is returning to the Bernabeu just over a year since having a heart attack in training.
The football world was left stunned when the Spaniard was hospitalised after collapsing during a Porto training session.
Thankfully he managed to make a full recovery – but did not play another game for the Portuguese giants.
Now, although he has not officially announced his retirement from football, the 39-year-old is returning 'home'.
Marca reports that he will work as an advisor to club president Florentino Perez – which will come as a surprise to many.
The pair had a bitter fall-out back in 2015 that led to Casillas leaving the club.
He was forced to hold his own press conference announcing the news, where he broke down in tears.
But the pair have clearly patched things up and his exact position "will be further defined in the coming weeks".
The shot-stopper made 725 appearances for Real Madrid in his 16-year spell at the club, claiming three Champions League and five La Liga titles.

He also triumphed at THREE major tournaments in a row with Spain, winning Euro 2008 and 2012 as well as the 2010 World Cup.
Casillas then joined Porto in 2015, where he won the league title and a domestic cup.
But the legendary Spanish goalkeeper was rushed to hospital following a health scare to undergo life-saving surgery in May last year.
