For the past few transfer windows, Real Madrid has been attempting to sign Manchester United’s David de Gea but have fallen short and never truly managed to secure the services of the Spanish shot-stopper.
However, according to Edwin van der Sar there is no need for Real Madrid to sign another goal-keeper as they already have a top class player with KeylorNavas.
There were rumors going on claiming that Real Madrid was going to re-attempt and sign David de Gea during the approaching summer transfer window but considering how impressively the Costa Rican player has been doing, it might not be necessary.
When Edwin van der Sar was asked about the possibility of seeing David de Gea making a move to Real Madrid or to any other club, the retired shot-stopper replied by saying: No, De Gea plays for Manchester United. I think Real Madrid already have a very good keeper in KeylorNavas, he is also a very strong keeper and he’s been important to the club. That’s the situation at the moment.”
KeylorNavas has been doing so impressively that he recently broke the Champions League record of having gone for the longest period of time without conceding a single goal.
“He overtook me; I think I’m third now. It’s an incredible achievement. Teams need good keepers, but also good defenders and midfielder, so it’s good for him that Madrid have those players.” Former Manchester United star Edwin van der Sar added on.
Edwin van der Sar retired from playing competitive football back on May of 2011 but he recently came out of retirement to play a single match with the Dutch football team VV Noordwijk and he managed to save a penalty kick.
