Real Madrid goalkeeper Kaylor Navas says he cried when his deadline day move to Manchester United fell through at the eleventh hour.

The Costa Rica international was penciled in an exchange deal which could have seen David De Gea move to opposite Santiago Bernebeu.

But incompletion of transfer papers before the closure of the summer transfer deadline in Spain on 31 August cost him the move.

“I cried that night when I found out I was staying, it was a build-up of emotions. I didn’t want to leave, Madrid is my home,” Navas told Spanish radio station Cadena COPE.

“I never wanted to leave Real Madrid. I thought that if God wanted me to leave Madrid, it would be for the best, but he didn’t want me to and I’m still here.”

Navas joined Real from Levante in the summer of 2014 after impressing with his nation at the World Cup, but played just 11 times last season.

The 25-year-old has however reaped from Iker Casillas’ departure to Porto this term as he has stood in goal for the Los Blancos in all five games and has yet to concede a goal so far this season.

“I signed the Manchester United contract on a stretcher while I had my medical, but I want to write my own story at this club and win everything this season,” he said.

“We have things to improve, but we’re on the right path.”
