Navas ignoring ongoing speculation

Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas has insisted that he is ignoring the ongoing speculation over his future at Real Madrid. Manchester United's David de Gea and Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois are being lined up as potential replacements for the 30-year-old.

The European champions have attracted the lot of transfer gossip this month as their search for a world-class shot-stopper has begun.

While speaking to the club's official website, Navas claimed that he does not mind about the ongoing speculation, and he is rather content plying his trade alongside the best players in the world.

"I try to work hard every day and ignore those sorts of things," Navas told the Real Madrid's website.

"I don't gain or lose anything with all of that. Madrid has to have the best players and I work hard each day to be the best, be amongst the best players and to be able to stay here for many years to come."

Navas was due to link up with Manchester United in the summer of 2015 in a deal which would have taken De Gea the other way, but a delay in a fax transmission scuppered the transfer.
