Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas has dropped a huge hint that he will leave the club in January amid reports that Arsenal have lodged a £14 million offer to sign him.
The Costa Rican has lost his place between the sticks following Thibaut Courtois’ move to Santiago Bernabeu, not starting in La Liga since the second game of the season back in the late summer.
He is desperate to play first-team football, and Los Blancos are ready to let him leave – especially with only 18 months remaining on his contract.
Now Spanish newspaper Sport reports that both the Gunners and Roma have made contact over a January deal, with the north London side offering £14 million for the 32-year-old.
Keylor Navas even hinted at a potentially imminent move on New Year’s Day, uploading an image of himself with Real supporters to Instagram alongside the message: ‘Thanks for everything!
The move for Costa Rica international would be rather curious, with Unai Emery having spent £19.6 million on Bernd Leno in the summer and prioritised a new central defender in January transfer window.
Nevertheless, Petr Cech is understood to leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires, and Arsenal are willing to provide more competition for German keeper, who has had a mixed start to life in the Premier League.
