Real Star: The Fans Want Me To Stay

A Real Madrid star, who has been tipped to leave Los Blancos in the coming months, has claimed he has no intentions of leaving, saying that even the supporters want him to stay, despite what some have reported.

Official: Real Madrid Announce New Coach

Costa Rica international Keylor Navas, who has been the Spanish side's No. 1 for the past three years, helped Real win three consecutive UEFA Champions League trophies, as well as the league title in the 2016/17 campaign.

Although he has often been linked with an exit from the Santiago Bernabeu, the 31-year-old has now revealed that he would like to retire at the Madrid giants, citing the club's supporters as a big reason for this.

"The kindness that the fans show me all the time is incredible, and I am very grateful to all of them," Navas told Marca.

"Whatever the sporting situation, they are always behind me. In the stadium, I always hear the shouts of support that motivate me, and when I walk through Madrid, people still come up to me and show me their support, they say 'don't go, we love you'.

"I am a Real Madrid player, and I have a contract until 2020. I have always said that I am happy at Real Madrid and I hope that, if God wishes, I can retire at this club.

"I am very happy at the club, in the city, with my teammates, so my head is in Real Madrid and to keep enjoying this team."

Navas made 44 appearances for Los Blancos last season, keeping 11 clean sheets along the way.
