Keylor Navas set to stay at Real Madrid

Real Madrid have yet to receive any offers for goalkeeper Keylor Navas and he is set to stay at the club, report Diario AS.

Benfica had been heavily linked to signing the shot-stopper and were said to be hopeful of including them in their talks to sign Madrid striker Raul de Tomas.

Luis Filipe Vieira, the president of the Portuguese giants, was said to be using his trip to the Spanish capital to finalise a deal for the shot-stopper.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked to the goalkeeper but have not yet submitted any bids, and nor are any expected.

The Costa Rican has been behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order for the majority of the season while Luca Zidane, son of Zinedine, has also been selected ahead of the Costa Rican.

Diario AS cite a report in A Bola which claims that Navas looks set to follow de Tomas to Lisbon with the biggest stumbling block said to be the goalkeeper’s wage demands.

The 32-year-old started just 11 La Liga matches this campaign although seven of them arrived since Zinedine Zidane returned in March.

However, multiple reports have suggested that the experienced goalkeeper has been told he is not part of Madrid’s plans next season.

The Portuguese giants had been linked with a move for Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen although he has since joined Valencia.

Navas joined Madrid from Levante in the summer of 2014 and has won three Champions League titles with the club.
