Navas future has come in doubts following the departure of Zinedine Zidane as Manager of Real Madrid.
It is popularly believed that Navas had the superior backing of Zidane as then Manager of Real Madrid hence Navas retained first choice goalkeeping position.

“The kindness that the fans show me all the time is incredible and I am very grateful to all of them”.
“Whatever the sporting situation, they are always behind me. In the stadium I always hear the shouts of support that motivate me and when I walk through Madrid people always come up to me and show me their support, they say ‘don’t go, we love you”.
“I’m a Real Madrid player and I have a contract until 2020. I’ve always said that I’m very happy at Real Madrid and I hope that, if God wishes, I can retire at this club”.
“I’m very happy at the club, in the city, with my team-mates, so my head is in Real Madrid and to keep enjoying this team.”-Navas
Navas endured a tough evening as Costa Rica lost their final World Cup warm-up game 4-1 against Belgium on Monday, but he remains hopeful of helping his team beyond Group E , into the knockout stages and possible all the way to the final.
Speaking about Costa Rica’s chances at the World Cup,
“I would love to take on Spain, obviously,” said Navas. “I have been in Spain a lot of years and I have a lot of love for the country. The Real Madrid fans support the national team and so for that reason it would be a nice final.”- Kaylor Navas
