Zidane Says He Wants Navas to Stay at Madrid

Zinedine Zidane is desperate to see the end of the transfer window after growing tired of the circus surrounding rumoured Real Madrid target Neymar.

Head coach Zidane made clear his preference for Keylor Navas to remain in Madrid but was less forthcoming with his views on a potential deal for Neymar.

“I’m working with the players I have at my disposal and we have a game on Saturday,” Zidane said ahead of the clash with Real Valladolid.

“Anything can happen until September 2, when the transfer window closes.

“Some might come, some might leave. I want September 2 to come as soon as possible so there will be no more questions.

“I cannot imagine the team without Keylor Navas, I don’t contemplate his exit,” added the Frenchman.

“He has always been an important player for us. Keylor hasn’t told me he wants to leave. He is here and the outside is something which he cannot control.

“He is happy here and wants to show that he can play here. He is a professional and I will count on him.”
