Zidane cannot contemplate goalkeeper Navas leaving Real Madrid

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says he cannot imagine his team parting ways with triple Champions League winning goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

(SOUNDBITE) (French) REAL MADRID COACH, ZINEDINE ZIDANE, SAYING: "No, that's exactly it, I can't imagine (this squad without him), for many reasons, but especially because he's a vital player and he's shown and demonstrated that throughout his career, not only in Madrid.

He's shown that he has always progressed in life, that he's always wanted to play, he's always wanted to win things and he's a player who will always be important in my team." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) REAL MADRID COACH, ZINEDINE ZIDANE, SAYING: "The players I have are the ones who are here.

And we're going to play a match tomorrow.

And as for the rest, as always, I'm going to keep saying this until the 2nd (of September), that anything can happen, as in all the clubs.

Some (players) could come, some could leave, and that's honestly why I want the 2nd to arrive quickly." 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) REAL MADRID COACH, ZINEDINE ZIDANE, SAYING: "And we're happy to see James (Rodriguez) here, and he counts just like the others.

That's what I want to see now and going forward and he's also happy to be here and to have returned to Madrid.

And we'll see how we're going to organise ourselves because there are many matches and we'll be counting on all the players." STORY: Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said he cannot imagine his team parting ways with triple Champions League winning goalkeeper Keylor Navas, even as reports gather pace that the Costa Rican has asked to leave the Spanish club.

Navas has been at Madrid since 2014 and was their number one during their unprecedented hat-trick of Champions League titles between 2016 and 2018 but has lost his place in the team since Belgium keeper Thibaut Courtois joined last year.

The Costa Rican was left on the bench in Madrid's 3-1 La Liga win at Celta Vigo last week and Spanish newspaper Marca said that Navas has told Madrid of his desire to leave, with other reports linking him with Paris St Germain.

Real have already sent two goalkeepers out on loan this year, with Zidane's son Luca joining Racing Santander and Andriy Lunin going to Saturday's opponents Valladolid, and the coach said he had no desire to go looking for another.

Madrid will be without Ballon d'Or winner Luka Modric due to suspension after the Croatian was shown a straight red card against Celta while forwards Eden Hazard, Brahim Diaz, Marco Asensio and Rodrygo are all still injured.

Real's problems in attack could see James Rodriguez make his first appearance for Madrid since leaving for a loan move to Bayern Munich over two years ago although Zidane would not reveal whether the Colombian would feature.
