UPDATE: Keylor Navas to remain at Real Madrid after transfer deal not sent on time, local media reports

By Michael Krumholtz

UPDATE, Monday, Aug. 31, 4:50 p.m.:

Costa Rica’s all-star goalkeeper Keylor Navas apparently will remain at Real Madrid after transfer papers were not sent on time before the deadline ended at midnight local time, according to a report from Spanish football diary Marca. The botched transfer that would have sent Navas to Manchester United in exchange for goalkeeper David De Gea means Navas must stay in Madrid for at least the remainder of the season.

After keeping a blank sheet in Real Madrid’s first two games, the unflappable Navas is now pressed with the awkward situation of playing for a president in Florentino Pérez who he knows would rather have De Gea. Earlier in the day on Monday, “Los Merengues” agreed to pay around 30 million euros to buy out De Gea and ship Navas to Manchester for at least 12 million euros.

Navas’ current contract with Madrid remains intact and runs until 2020.
