Zinedine Zidane will reportedly be deciding signings and sales next summer. Real Madrid President Florentino Pérez believes that Zidane can handle that kind of power and if that happens then Keylor Navas will stay with Madrid and Los Blancos will not make a move for United's keeper David De Gea, according to a report from COPE and Marca.

Keylor Navas is in great form at age 29 and De Gea just isn't needed anymore. At least, that's what Zidane thinks if that report is accurate. Navas was the main star alongside Gareth Bale during Madrid's 4-0 win to Sevilla yesterday, with the Costa Rican goalkeeper saving a penalty and keeping a clean sheet against Sevilla's good efforts on goal.

Furthermore, De Gea signed a contract extension with United months ago and that means that Madrid would need to spend around €40 or €50 million to sign the Spanish goalkeeper. Is he worth that much considering how well Navas is playing? Zidane doesn't think so.
