Real Madrid confirm arrival of Costa Rica keeper, Navas

MADRID, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid conformed the signing of Levante goalkeeper, Keylor Navas on a six-year contract on Sunday afternoon.

The Costa Rican international joins Real Madrid until 2020 after the European Champions are thought to have paid his former club around 10 million euros (13 million US dollars) for his services in a deal which ends several days of waiting for Navas who was due to return to training in Valencia on Tuesday.

Instead Tuesday will see him presented as a new Real Madrid player at 13.00 hours in the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Navas is Real Madrid's third signing of the summer and takes the club's pre-season spending to around 130 million euros, a figure which could well increase before the start of the season if Radamel Falcao joins from Monaco.

The arrival of a goalkeeper, who was one of the stars of the World Cup finals in Brazil means that either Iker Casillas or Diego Lopez will almost certainly abandon the club.

Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said on Friday that Casillas will play in the European Supercup, but added that after that he "didn't know what would happen," and that doubt will have grown after Casillas' poor display in Real Madrid's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.

Meanwhile Lopez, who was first choice in the BBVA Primera Liga last season, is thought to have offers from the Premier League and MLS and is unlikely to want to stay to be third choice keeper.
