De Gea has been strongly linked with a move to Madrid all summer but Man United are adamant that only a world record fee for a goalkeeper would be enough to prise him away from Old Trafford.
Madrid are looking at other options as a result and have decided to include players in an attempt to sway United.
Navas built a reputation as a solid goalkeeper at Levante but he has struggled for first-team opportunities at the Bernabeu.
The situation with De Gea is becoming tiresome in the extreme and it doesn’t look like there will be a conclusion anytime soon.
Matters on the pitch are now getting affected by the speculation as De Gea has been left out of United’s matchday squads in recent weeks. If he is to leave, hopefully it will be soon so United can fully focus on the season ahead.
