Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas has confirmed he may leave the the Santiago Bernabeu this summer amid reports claiming David De Gea's arrival at the La Liga giants from Manchester United is imminent.
The Costa Rica international moved to the Spanish side in the summer of 2014 after they agreed to meet his £8m ($13m) release clause with Levante to secure his services following the departure of Diego Lopez to Milan.
Even after being one of the sensations of the World Cup he was expected to fight with Iker Casillas for the number one role. Navas eventually only started six La Liga games under Carlo Ancelotti during the last campaign.
Rafa Benitez recently admitted his admiration for the Costa Rican while the keeper himself claimed that he was ready to keep fighting for a starting role at the Bernabeu even if De Gea joins the competition.
But Navas has now admitted that even though he would like to stay at Benitez's side his future is all but uncertain after having talks with the club about his future.
"I have spoken with the club. Only God knows if I'll continue. I hope I can stay with the squad and keep fighting for my dream, which is to be the first choice keeper," he said, according to AS.
"I'm not prepared to put up with what I have done so far at Madrid. Things didn't turn out as I would have wanted last season but those moments have only made me stronger", the keeper explained in this evening's press conference."
Navas's revelations come just one day after reports in Spain claimed Casillas and the Spanish giants have reached an agreement for the club legend to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer and expedite the arrival of David De Gea.
