Real Madrid new boy Keylor Navas has insisted that he will start off a new chapter in Spain, in spite of the uncertainty regarding his place in the starting eleven.

The Costa Rican left his former club Levante this summer after having spent the last three season at the Spanish outfit, to join Carlo Ancelotti's side.

And in spite of the competition that awaits him at the Santiago Bernabeu in the presence of Iker Casillas, the goalkeeper is excited about the dream move.

For now Navas wants to concentrate on training hard and will leave it to the manager to decide on who will be the club's first choice goalkeeper.


"I don't make those decisions, I just train hard", Navas was quoted as saying by Madrid-based daily Marca.

"I've been welcomed like a family member at Real Madrid. I'm starting a new chapter.

"Only [Carlo] Ancelotti knows who'll be the club's first-choice keeper, but I'm relaxed; I'm doing well in training

"When I pulled on the Real Madrid shirt, I thought of my childhood, my wife, and of all the hard work I do on a daily basis"
