Though he turns 32 on Sunday, Keylor Navas is in no rush to leave Real Madrid, despite being relegated to Copa del Rey duties at best.
Away from the pitch since the arrival of Santiago Solari, his mood is lower than ever.
Now he can’t even get a game in ‘dead rubbers,’ like the one from last Wednesday against CSKA.
His last substitution has given rise to all kinds of speculation about his future at the club in the short term, but the Costa Rican will endure things until the end of the season and in the summer will take the best decision for his future.
He won’t leave Real Madrid in January for several reasons.
At the beginning of February he will be a father again, which slows down his desire to leave the city of Madrid, where he has been living with his family since 2014.
He wants to continue with his life after retirement in Madrid, so a change of team now, doesn’t fit into his plans.
Another reason that is hindering his departure is the absence of a strong team at a sporting and economic level.
All the great European teams already have their keeper in place, and no team would equal the almost five million euros net that Keylor receives from Real Madrid.
And to all this we must add the will of the club, who don’t want to lose him this winter.
Having Navas on the bench is a luxury that they want to continue enjoying.
Until the summer he will play the Copa del Rey, and it doesn’t seem likely that he is going to play against Rayo on his birthday or that he will be rewarded with a starting berth at the Club World Cup.
