Costa Rican stopper has no interest in moving to England.
Keylor Navas has dealt a huge blow to the transfer plans of Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool be reaffirming his desire to stay with Real Madrid, the Daily Express reports.
The 28-year-old joined the European champions last summer after impressing with Costa Rica at the World Cup and was initially seen as an eventual replacement for veteran stalwart Iker Casillas.
Both Arsenal and Liverpool have been on the lookout for new additions between the sticks as they have both endured difficulties in the position this season.
Navas had emerged as a target for the Premier League sides as he is still yet to replace Casillas, though his father has confirmed his desire to stay in the Spanish capital.
“Keylor told me he is not leaving Real Madrid. He is very happy,” Navas’ father said.
“He is a fighter who wants to work hard and triumph at the club.
“He knows that he has to fight for a place. It’s a process that he’s accepting very well.
“In the press, some people are claiming that he is not good enough, but he is very strong.”
