Real Madrid have announced the signing of goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who has arrived today to the Spanish capital to sign his contract with Los Blancos.

“Real Madrid C.F. and Levante U.D. have reached an agreement for the transfer of Keylor Navas, who has signed to the club for the next six seasons,” Los Merengues announced in their website.

“The player will be presented on Tuesday 5 August at 13:00, in the president’s box in the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, after undergoing the corresponding medical,” they added.

Spanish press has reported the Costa Rican will sign a six-year contract, thus becoming a Real player until 2020.

Navas attended the media before taking the plane to Madrid and confessed “it’s going to be a nice experience and I’m willing to make the most of it from day one.”

“Becoming the starting goalkeeper is difficult, but I will work with humility. I will be positive as I have always been. I’ll do my best, and we’ll see what happens,” he added.

The 25-year-old admitted he was never worried about his signing: “I’ve been very quiet. I put it in God’s hands. If he wanted me to sign for Madrid, I would be there.”

Navas stated he expects to “learn a lot” from his new team-mates, and pointed out “Real have a strong and united squad.”

Keylor Navas is the third Real Madrid signing of the summer transfer market, joining midfielders Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez.
