Keylor Navas’ agent has expressed gratification at reported interest from AC Milan.

The Levante goalkeeper has greatly impressed in La Liga this term, trailing only Atletico Madrid’s on-loan sensation Thibaut Courtois with 12 clean sheets and leading the league in saves.

Navas’ contract at the Estadi Ciutat de Valencia expires in June 2015 and talks on a renewal are yet to bear fruit, with a summer move to a more illustrious club mooted.

Atletico themselves have been tipped to make a play for the 27-year-old with Chelsea-owned Courtois’ future the subject of constant speculation, whilst Mersyside pair Liverpool and Everton have reportedly kept a close eye on the shot stopper of late.

Meanwhile, Milan have similarly cropped up as a potential suitor for the Costa Rican, Levante thought to be prepared to sell the star on for £8m following the World Cup in Brazil.

Competition for Navas’ signature looks set to be fierce with a wealth of parties involved, though according to the San Isidro native’s representative has revealed that any interest is yet to come concrete.

However, Ricardo Cabanas pointed to Milan as an intriguing option upon being pressed, implying that Levante could be amenable to doing a deal.

“Even here in Spain, I read of the interest of the Rossoneri,” he told Calcionews24. “I enjoy it, but I have to admit that with respect to me nobody has stepped forward.

“Navas still has a year left on his contract with Levante, who have the authority to negotiate a possible transfer for the boy.

“Milan are one of the biggest clubs in the world and if their interest is real it would be extremely satisfying.”
