Thibaut Courtois

Real Madrid eventually completed their longtime move for Chelsea goalie Thibaut Courtois on Tuesday and he is set to be unveiled later today.

With his signature already in the bag, the question now is who would become the club’s first choice netminder between the Belgian and Costa Rica international Kaylor Navas, who has been at Santiago Bernabeu for four years.

However, Navas remains upbeat his place is secure in the team and he won’t move out of the club this summer.

According to him, he isn’t thinking about his future at Santiago Bernabeu as he is sure of keeping his place as the club’s No1 goalkeeper despite the acquisition of the Belgian international.

“Of course, and I say this with force, I have the same desire to leave than I have to die, He revealed to reporters

The Costa Rican goaltender joined the Los Blancos in 2014 following his brilliant showings for his country during the year’s world cup which was hosted by Brazil.

It was reported last summer that he could be heading out of the Spanish giants due to Zidane’s intense race for Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea but he didn’t move because the former Real Madrid manager failed in his bid to lure the Spanish goalkeeper from Old Trafford.

Navas, 31, has helped the European Champions to three Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup trophies, two UEFA Super Cups, a LaLiga and Supercopa de Espana titles since he moved to the club in 2014.

Courtois will reportedly sign a six-year contract with the Galacticos later today, should he pass his medicals.
