    Keylor Navas



    Full name: Keylor Antonio Navas Gamboa
    Date of birth: 15 December 1986 (age 27)
    Nationality: Costa Rica
    Height: 1.84 m (6 ft 0 in)
    Club: Levante
    Playing position: Goalkeeper

    During the WC, I can very well imagine that many people have opened their eyes to Keylor Navas and he's one of the main reasons why Costa Rica reached quarterfinal. But Keylor Navas had a really good season with the La Liga club Levante (who finished 10th in the table) before the tournament began.

    Keylor Navas has made 160 saves under this season which is most of all goalkeepers among Europe's top five leagues according Whoscored (a site that specializes in football statistics).

    On the other hand, he came 4th in the pursuit of Zamora trophy among goalkeepers in La Liga. However, keep in mind that his competitors (like Lopez, Courtois and Valdes) playing in top clubs where the trio have much better defense in front. In other words, it's really good for someone who belongs to a mid-table team.

    He is simply one of the best goalies right now.

    Best keeper in La Liga last season and showing his class in the WC. I hope he goes to a big club as starting GK, he deserves it.

    Aren't Atletico signing him if Courtois leaves? Currently the top choice for the world cup golden glove.

    They should definitely do. His buyout is only 10m I think. That'd be a steal!

    That is something Atletico (and Valencia) always do. They always sell their MVPs season after season and yet keep producing one after another MVPs, hats off to their scouts and the coaching staff.

    Makes you think why didn't we go for him if we really want a GK to rotate Ter Stegen with ? Not that anything wrong with Bravo. But Navas is just more talented i think.

    So far it's just rumors so nothing is settled yet. But even if it were true, Chelsea must sell Petr Cech but it will not be easy when the Czech sits on a contract until 2016 and has a high salary. Beside, Courtois said himself that he does not want to be second goalkeeper for the London-team.

    And Mourinho himself said that Courtois is coming.

    True...

    The TV station Antena 3 reported on Tuesday morning that Real Madrid are also interested in Keylor Navas.

    Think honestly not even our former/current goalkeepers trained/train this hard!
