Costa Rican left in tears after Manchester United transfer broke down

The summer transfer window for Manchester United will be remembered for the David De Gea to Real Madrid saga, one that broke down in the final minutes after Real Madrid had taken too long with submitting the paperwork to the La Liga office.

The deal was for money, along with their current goalkeeper Keylor Navas coming to Old Trafford. Navas has today admitted that he was in tears when the deadline day exchange to Manchester United had collapsed.


The Costa Rican had already signed the paperwork, agreed personal terms and completed a medical over in Spain, before the deal’s infamous collapse and the blame game began.

Navas, on Spanish radio on Monday night, revealed that he cried on hearing that he would be able to stay at Real Madrid.


He said:

“I cried with my wife, and I needed to cry a little more.”

“With everything that had happened, when I went to bed with my wife I started to think about everything that had happened and it just kind of exploded out.

“I didn’t want to leave Madrid.

“Ever since signing for Madrid it was a dream to be here and I never wanted to leave.”
