Real Madrid goalkeeper has given the biggest indication yet that he will be leaving the Spanish club in the summer.

Both Arsenal and Liverpool were linked with a move for the Costa Rican international in November, and speaking recently about his future to Madrid newspaper AS, he said:

“I do not know if the club doubts me, but I have a contract.”

There is a huge amount of speculation in the Spanish press that Real are seeking a new number one goalkeeper. The club’s three main targets are believed to be Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois, Manchester United’s and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak.

Oblak has himself been rumoured as a target for in the summer, but the Slovenian international will have a number of other suitors with and having been reported as potential destinations.

Navas meanwhile could be available for a much lower fee than Oblak, whose release clause is reportedly €100m. The Real stopper has been the La Liga side’s first choice for the past three years.

However, it is questionable whether the 31 year old could be a suitable long term replacement for Petr Cech.
