Keylor Navas 'relaxed' about Real Madrid future

Real Madrid Bernabeu

Keylor Navas' future remains uncertain, with Real Madrid reported to be increasingly confident of landing Manchester United's David de Gea.

Real Madrid second-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas is staying calm as speculation grows that Iker Casillas will leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, as per the Guardian, with David de Gea set to arrive from Manchester United, as per the Independent.

The Costa Rica international joined Madrid last summer, having impressed for Levante in La Liga and with the national side as they made the World Cup quarter-finals.

Navas was used as back-up throughout the 2014-15 season, but with Casillas struggling for his best form and being barracked by his own fans during games at the Bernabeu, new boss Rafael Benitez could look to make a change.

According to RTVE in Spain, Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen to move Casillas on this summer, with United's player of the year for two consecutive seasons De Gea lined up as the long-term replacement.

This all leaves the future of Navas, 28, up in the air, as he himself admitted after a superb performance in Costa Rica's 2-1 friendly defeat to Spain on Thursday.

"You cannot talk about the future, as nobody knows it yet," Navas told reporters, as per ESPN.

"But I have a contract with Madrid, I am Madrid's goalkeeper and I am happy and proud to be at this great club.

"I am relaxed, I work with humility, I do not know any other way. I have confidence and ability to do well. I trust in myself, and many people also trust in me, which I appreciate."
