Real Madrid star threatens to leave if manager Zinedine ZIdane wishes him to

Keylor Navas

Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas has said that he would be ready to leave La Liga giants Real Madrid if manager Zinedine Zidane wants him to. 

The 32-year-old Costa Rican goalkeeper was in fine form last season for Real, but has seen his opportunities limited with the arrival of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.

And Real Madrid’s pursuit of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea also does not make good reading for Navas. And asked about his situation at the club after Real’s 2-1 defeat to Valencia on Wednesday, Navas said he would be willing to move on if Zidane tells him to do so.

“If the coach tells me to go, that’s what I’m going to do. But I have a contract and my present is at Real Madrid,” Navas said.

“I will always try to give my best and convince the coach that I should play,” he added. “I have a contract and I want to be here, but let’s see what happens. Let’s focus on finishing the season well,” the Real shot-stopper said.

“We have to, for the honour of the badge, go out and win the remaining [eight] matches,” he added.
