MADRID – Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says he cannot imagine his team parting ways with triple Champions League winning goalkeeper Keylor Navas, even as reports gather pace that the Costa Rican has asked to leave the Spanish club.
Navas has been at Madrid since 2014, and was their number one during their unprecedented hat trick of Champions League titles between 2016 and 2018.
But he has lost his place in the team since Belgium keeper Thibaut Courtois joined last year.
The Costa Rican was left on the bench in Madrid’s 3-1 La Liga win at Celta Vigo last week, and Spanish newspaper Marca said that Navas has told Madrid of his desire to leave, with other reports linking him with Paris Saint-Germain.
But Zidane said he does not want Navas to go anywhere.
