Keylor Navas is beginning to cause a major problem for Real Madrid this summer. Not only for the club but also his coach, Zinedine Zidane. After a move to PSG fell through, there are no other offers on the table for the Costa Rican international. This is something Keylor himself didn't expect to happen, nor Zidane.

The French coach is desperate for Keylor to find a new club. Not because he doesn't rate the goalkeeper who helped him win three Champions League titles, but for the very reason that he does. If Keylor and Courtois remain at Real Madrid, Zidane will be forced to pick his first choice stopper. And his decision could against that of the club, who prefer the Belgian.

Zidane himself would prefer Keylor to stay and have Lunin as his backup next season. However the club insists Courtois is untouchable and that's why he should be kept ahead of Navas.

The problem at Real Madrid is they now need to shift some of their unwanted players such as Dani Ceballos, James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale if they are to continue spending money this summer. Zidane wants Paul Pogna in his midfield and knows striking a deal with Manchester United won't be easy. So the last thing Zidane needs is another headache like trying to resolve the goalkeeping situation. That's why he's desperate for Keylor to move on.
