In Costa Rica, they are reporting on rumours involving their national hero, Keylor Navas, and Real Madrid potentially signing a new goalkeeper. Thibaut Courtois is reportedly close to signing for the club with Navas' future possibly up in the air even if he is willing to stay and fight for his position. The 31-year-old has broken his silence while on his vacations with a an Instagram post that simple says "#HalaMadrid" but it is accompanied by a video montage of his 10 titles with the club since 2014. Those titles inclue Three Champions League, a league title, three Club World Cups and three European Super Cups. It could be a reminder to Real Madrid of the success they have met with the Costa Rican in goals.
"I like to learn from Courtois and De Gea by watching them on the television," said Navas in 2017 to El larguero. It is the same every summer for the shot-stopper, even after winning his third Champions League title in a row with the club. This time feels different, however, as reports continue to intensify regarding the signing of Chelsea's Courtois. They also sign young Ukrainian Andriy Lunin for €8.5 million with €4.5 in add-ons.
Clamour coming from Costa Rica
Repretel said on Thursday morning that Navas is once again at the departure gates. "Real Madrid are looking for a keeper again. Since the fall of Iker Casillas, whih led to his departure from the club, Florentino Perez has never been convinced by Keylor Navas"
