After being instrumental in Costa Rica’s excellent run in the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil, he left Levante to sign at Real Madrid, and has definitely returned the faith Los Blancos showed in him.
La Liga title, first since 2012, back-to-back Champions League triumphs, Super Cup, Club World Cup, Madrid have won it all these last years, and Keylor Navas has been key in all those successes.
Even so, Real are reported to be looking for a new number 1. David de Gea, Thibaut Courtois, Gianluigi Donnarumma, these are the three names figuring at the top of their list, at least according to reports.
I will fight to the death against whoever comes
Navas told Spanish newspaper Marca in an interview. As for how he feels towards his coach knowing that the club are looking for someone to replace him at goal, the Costa Rica international had nothing but good words.
I don’t have words to express my gratitude to Zidane
he said, focusing on the trust he has been shown so far by Madrid’s coach.
Navas revealed that he has already started training by himself, even though Madrid’s preseason hasn’t started yet. As he said, he wants to look perfectly fit once the squad get together for the first time.
