There are some shocked faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that Keylor Navas never actually wanted to join Manchester United from Real Madrid.
The goalkeeper was close to joining the Red Devils in the summer, and had even passed a medical at the club, and was ready to sign on the dotted line with David De Gea going the other way, yet after the move fell through at literally the last minute, Keylor stayed in Madrid.
The keeper has gone on to keep successive clean sheets this season in all his games, and was again star of the show against Granada on the weekend.
Our United supporting punters think Navas would probably still accept a move to Old Trafford should the club eventually move for De Gea again, and his claim he ‘never wanted to join’ could well make him a little embarrassed in the future!
Manchester United fans…… Would you take Navas or is he just not as good as De Gea? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
