Keylor Navas Transfer 2014: Costa Rican Goalkeeper Deal With Real Madrid Settled?

Real Madrid and Keylor Navas have reached an agreement.

The 27-year-old Costa Rican international and Levante player will sign a five-year contract with last season’s Champions League winners, according to Spanish newspaper AS

Navas will move for a fee of 10 million euros ($13.5 million), and earn 2.5 million euros ($3.4 million) per year, Marca reports.

Navas is supposedly training on his own now in Costa Rica while preparing to fly to Madrid. 

The Costa Rican could be unveiled at the Bernabéu either today or tomorrow, AS reports.

With Navas’s imminent arrival, Real Madrid executive Jose Angel Sanchez and others are delaying joining the Real Madrid team in the United States for the pre-season friendlies.

The Madrid executives also have to make a decision about selling or loaning Diego Lopez or Iker Casillas, their current goalkeepers, now that Navas is joining up with Los Blancos.

So far, Real Madrid has been busy sweeping up the outstanding performers from World Cup 2014.

Former Bayern Munich player and German World Cup star Toni Kroos was signed for about 25 million euros ($33.7 million), and Colombia attacking midfielder and World Cup 2014 Golden Boot winner James Rodriguez was signed for about 80 million euros ($107.8 million).
