The Toni Kroos deal will likely be made official today, whereas the James Rodríguez's issue is getting clearer, and so it seems that the attention is swifted towards Real Madrid's goal again. Twitter is on fire after Marca's frontpage was released last night, announcing that Keylor Navas will play in Real Madrid next season. The Spanish newspaper ABC reports similar information.

According to Marca, the deal was closed last week. Real Madrid will pay the clause (10 million euros) to Levante and the Costa Rican goalkeeper will fight for a spot with Iker Casillas, while Diego López, who is wanted by Nápoles and Monaco, will likely leave the team. In fact, they claim that the deal will not be made official until Diego's departure is also confirmed.

We can neither confirm nor deny that this information is true. My personal opinion is that the Navas's deal seems quite reliable, but I am not so sure about all things regarding Diego López's departure. In any case, it is a good time to recall what a good goalkeeper we would have if these news were to come true.
