Man Utd, Arsenal alerted by availability of three-time Champions League winner

Manchester United and Arsenal have been alerted by news that Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas is reportedly available this summer.

Navas has found himself firmly behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order after the Belgian arrived last summer, despite his variable form.

There was the suggestion that Navas might get more first-team opportunities under the returning Zinedine Zidane, especially given Courtois’ struggles, but the latest reports suggest otherwise.

Spanish outlet AS report that Zidane will continue with Courtois as the undisputed number one next season, which is likely to bring an end to Navas’s five-year stay in Madrid.

Navas, who has made just 12 appearances this season across LaLiga and the Champions League, has a year left on his deal – something which has apparently got him on the radar of Manchester United and Arsenal.

Arsenal need a replacement for the retiring Petr Cech, while questions over David De Gea’s long-term future at Old Trafford will surely have forced them to consider options.

Navas for his part is apparently keen on playing in England, and the three-time Champions League winner was linked with a move to England in January.
