The 4 Goalkeepers Who Could Replace Keylor Navas

The 4 Goalkeepers Who Could Replace Keylor Navas


Keylor Navas had faced criticism recently when he did some mistakes in the defeat against Sevilla. It was the first game lost after the unbeaten run and some people criticized Keylor Navas, who wasn’t able to save the shot from Stefan Jovetic. The Costa Rican player is showing a superb level since the departure of Iker Casillas two years ago, but his performances are getting worse recently.

On the other hand, Kiko Casilla showed a good level at the beginning of the season and in the Copa del Rey fixtures. There was some controversy because some supporters thought that the Catalan should be the goalkeeper in La Liga. Zidane has always been very keen on Keylor Navas and the manager defended the former Levante player recently in press conference. However, there are four goalkeepers that Real Madrid have in the agenda for the future.

David de Gea

Real Madrid were about to sign David de Gea in the summer of 2015. However, Florentino Pérez had a problem with the fax and the papers didn’t arrive on time. De Gea thought he was going to play at Real Madrid and Keylor was already travelling to Manchester. Finally, both stayed in their clubs and Keylor ended up the season lifting the Champions League trophy.

Nevertheless, Florentino Pérez has not forgotten David de Gea. The president insists in getting the former Atlético de Madrid goalkeeper on board, but according to The Express, Zinedine Zidane disagrees and the French manager has discarded the Spaniard.

Thibaut Courtois

Since his times with Atlético de Madrid, Thibaut Courtois has always been a target for Real Madrid. The Belgian goalkeeper is shining with Antonio Conte’s Chelsea and it would be hard to sign him in the next transfer window. However, Chelsea are interested in Morata, so this could open a window for talks in the summer.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

He’s the best goalkeeper in Italy since the outbreak of Gigi Buffon. Former Real Madrid player Diego López had to pack the luggage and left Milan because Donnarumma was the owner of the goal in San Siro. He’s the youngest goalkeeper in making the debut with the Italian national team and one of the best players in the new AC Milan. The player is in talks to extend his deal, but the ‘rossoneri’ aren’t currently a top club in Europe, so the Italian might want to change team and fight for bigger success.

Hugo Lloris

Hugo Lloris has recently extended his contract with Tottenham Hotspur until 2022. However, according to The Sun he is in Real Madrid’s radar in case Courtois fails. Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid have a long story of negotiations and they might be at the same table again for the playmaker Isco Alarcón and Hugo Lloris.

The fifth, and more likely option, is keeping Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican suffers big criticism but he’s shown he is more than capable of standing out in the team and give important points to the club. Which goalkeeper do you prefer?
