Keylor Navas was brilliant for Real Madrid in their derby against Atletico Madrid – after being impressive in their Champions League tie to boot, but the player has constantly been linked with a move away from the club, and being replaced by David De Gea.
However, the goalie noted that he will be seeing out his contact at the club, and isn’t worrying about someone new coming in and replacing him.
“I’m calm, I have two years left on my contract and I intend to fulfil them,” he explained in an interview with BeIN Sports.
“People ask me if I’m leaving, but I’m only leaving to go home to my family.
“We have to wait for the league season to end.
“It hasn’t been an easy season, we’ll have to see how far we can go.
“We’ve never given up at any time.
“We have to play with more intensity after scoring.
“We scored against a team that defends very well, we then needed to be calm.
“It’s a draw that we’re not happy with but it reflects what happened on the pitch.”
That is of course good news for Manchester United, who are set on keeping De Gea, who is of course one of the best players in the world and is certainly the best goalkeeper in the world and has certainly kept them in games on more than a few occasions this season.
The player himself has made no noises recently that he would like to leave United for Real Madrid, and will certainly be in line for the candidacy for the captaincy once Michael Carrick leaves – and will possibly even sign a bumper new deal with the club this summer.
